Summary

This video - part of the General Maths series - looks at how to convert from one set of units into another. Looking primarily at lengths, areas and volumes there are a number of worked examples which show how to convert between areas in different units, lengths in different units and volumes in different units.
Errata: There are two worked examples where I have (rather stupidly) used the wrong conversions. I have updated the downloadable notes to show the correct working out! Some Guru I am :) and :(
