**Conversion Problems: Meters, Yards, Kilometers and Miles**

IXL is a very useful math
program. However, it appears to have
only one section on conversions between the metric system and the U.S. standard
system. This problem set involves
measures of distance. I will also create
problem sets for weight and volume measures.

**Conversion Problems: Measures of Distance**

One meter is equal to
1.093621 yards. How many meters are in a
yard?

How many inches are in a
meter?

There are 1,760 yards in a
mile? How many meters are in a
mile? (First, is the answer less than or
greater than 1,760?)

How many miles are in a
kilometer or a 1.0 K race?

How many miles are in 5,000
meters or a 5.0 K race?

How many miles are in 20
kilometers or a 20 K?

A marathon is 26 miles and
385 yards. How long is the marathon in
kilometers?

How long is the marathon in
meters?

How many kilometers are in 5
miles?

The circumference of the
earth around the equator is 24,901.6 miles.
What is the circumference of the earth around the equator in
kilometers? What is the circumference
in meters?

The speed limit is 35 miles
per hour but the speedometer is in in kilometers per hour. What number on the kilometer is equal to 35
miles per hour?

A car is going 120 kilometers
per hour in a 65 mile per hour zone. Is
the car speeding? How far above or below
the speed limit is the car going?
