Converting units

Health care professionals frequently convert from one system of measurement to another. Whether you are converting a metric measurement into the household system for a patient or converting within the metric system to enter data in a specific format, the ability to perform conversions is an important skill.

Provide an example of why you might convert from one system to another.

Correct result:

b =  48 Oz


1 pound=16 ounces  a=3 Pound b=16 a=16 3=48 Oz
