Let me make it clear that I'm a moron in math, and thus, I'm also a moron in Physics at this point. I just bombed a quiz on converting Base units... so I really want some help. Please help me out, but if you dont know, dont act like you do. Thanks in advance.

**Example -**

C3PO weighs 200 ibs, convert his weight to metric kilograms.

1 kg = 2.2 ibs, so it's 2.2 ibs divided by 200 ibs, which equals 90.9, so C3PO weighs 90.9 kilograms?

**Example -**

Blue Snaggletooth stands 3 ft. tall, convert his height to millimeters.

1 ft. = 12 inches, so 12 times 3 (ft) is 36. So Blue Snaggletooth is 36 inches. 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters, so 2.54 centimeters multiplied by 36 inches is 91.44 centimeters. Slide the decimal to the right to convert centimeters to millimeters, making Blue Snaggletooth 914.4 millimeters tall?

**Example -**

A squad of Dewbacks patrol a 12 mile perimeter, convert the miles to kilometers.

1 mi. = 1.6 km, so 1.6 km multiplied by 12 mi is 19.2 km. The dewbacks patrolled 19.2 km?

Please let me know if I'm correct, if not, please correct me and explain. Thanks a lot.
