Instructions for data entry into length conversion calculator:
There are a few things to be careful of -
don't enter anything except numbers and a single decimal point - The
program is good at finding numbers amongst other stuff, however, it can
be confusing if you put commas in your numbers because whilst
you might think they are part of a number, the calculator
doesn't
the program is highly accurate in percentage terms but not in
absolute terms. Therefore, if you are using lots of significant places
the last places are likely to be incorrect but the size of the error
will be a small portion of the whole number.
be wary of very large numbers because numbers that are too big for
the place the computer provides, are not reported, you just get
incorrect or silly results.
Enter your input and press the convert button. While using the
length conversion calculator it is a good idea to clear between entries

the two together.
