How to convert customary units of length, weight and capacity using conversion tables?

Customary units of length, weight, and capacity can be a bit tricky to convert because there are many different units and conversion factors to remember. Here’s a breakdown to help you convert between them:

Length:

Inches (in)

Feet (ft) - 1 ft = 12 in

Yards (yd) - 1 yd = 3 ft = 36 in

Miles (mi) - 1 mi = 1760 yd = 5280 ft

Weight:

Ounces (oz)

Pounds (lb) - 1 lb = 16 oz

Tons (T) - 1 T = 2000 lb

Capacity:

Fluid ounces (fl oz)

Cups (c) - 1 c = 8 fl oz

Pints (pt) - 1 pt = 2 c = 16 fl oz

Quarts (qt) - 1 qt = 2 pt = 4 c = 32 fl oz

Gallons (gal) - 1 gal = 4 qt = 8 pt = 128 fl oz

Here’s how to use the conversion factors:

Identify what you’re converting: Are you converting from a larger unit to a smaller unit (e.g., yards to feet) or vice versa (feet to yards)?

Choose the appropriate conversion factor: Based on what you’re converting, find the multiplication or division factor from the tables above.

Multiply or divide: If converting from a larger unit to a smaller unit, multiply by the conversion factor.

If converting from a smaller unit to a larger unit, divide by the conversion factor.
