Simply multiply the known quantities with conversion factors given in the table to convert units.

#### Explanation:

For example,

2.54 cm = 1 inch (from a conversion table)

Then, a length 1 ft = 12 inches

= 12 X 2.54 cm

= 30.48 cm

Also, 1 lb = 450 gms (approx) (from conversion table)

Thus, 2.2 lb = 990 gms (approx)

This, way one should proceed in converting units.
