lets take an example , say you have 3 miles and you want to convert to inches using the formula \[1[\text{mi}]=63360[\text{in}]\] \[3\times1[\text{mi}]=3\times63360[\text{in}]\] \[3[\text{mi}]=3\times63360[\text{in}]=190080[\text {in}]\]

Taking Uncle's example of 3 miles to inches: \[3\cancel{mi}*\frac{5280\cancel{ft}}{1\cancel{mi}}*\frac{12in}{1\cancel{ft}}=190080in\] That's a general method for performing just about any conversion...you just need to know up front how many feet at in a mi, inches in a foot, etc.

My post or Unkle's? What's confusing about it? If you learn the method above you can convert just about anything. It turns it into a simply multiplication and division problem in which the unneeded units simply cancel out. If all of that's confusing you then you're screwed for the test :/
