    To three decimal points should be enough.

    Good looking out, I did it backwards. [​IMG]
    1ft=.3048m
    Bill did you use a TI to find that answer? If so which one?

    Hewlett Packard 48G. It does unit conversions quite easily.

    Just about any conversion you could think of is at Convert-Me.com

    In college, I was one of the very few of my classmates that didn't have any of the new-fangled HP calculators (28, 41, 48), instead I got by on a solar-powered Sharp EL-509 that did complex math. I proved that it was possible to get an engineering degree and not have a fancy calculator in the early 90's. [​IMG]

    Fine, then let me be the geeky, FRUGAL, engineer! That haircut of mine in college was bad enough! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Dammit, I think I'm having a Stuart Smalley Engineering moment...excuse me as I pull myself together. Sigh...All those memories of punching the number keys on the calculators brought back some frightful anxieties on test days...

    Heehee...Yeah, there's nothing like sharing a game of "HapaMan" (the HP version of PacMan) with a fellow geek. [​IMG]

    Oh, count me as a HP48G(X) user. Did you see that HP is killing off their calculator division? How sad. They're so much better than TI's...

    I have such difficulty with non-RPN calcs now, I really have to think about how to use them!

    Ah! I forgot, I did upgrade to a TI-68 (non-graphing) calculator in grad school (didn't really help too much in grad school though). I just never did like the RPN stuff from HP.

    Was this a real question? If so, no one has answered it yet. Bill's is close but you only wanted 3 decimal places. (You got a little bit carried away there, didn't you Bill)?

    I'll go for the 3.281 but the rest of this is all calculator stuff, which is why I'm here.

    I take it that all of these calculators have metric/standard convversion buttons. If so, they should be checked for accuracy.

    I had to get one for work once and found out that some models did not covert correctly, but it only showed up using larger amounts. What does 100,000 lbs weight in kilos?

    I still prefer my old HP 15C (from college) over the HP 48G+. Anyone want a like-new HP 48G+? I am willing to take US$75 OBO (e.g., cash, CD/MP3 player, and/or DVDs)....includes shipping within Canada/US. Do a search under HT software for sale....for my username.
