1/700 means:
1 miilimeter = 700 millimeters 1 centimeter = 700 centimeters 1 meter = 700 meters 1 inch = 700 inches 1 foot = 700 feet 1 mile = 700 miles etc. As long as the units are the same, it doesn't matter what they are; 1/700 is 1/700. If conversion from English to metric is a problem, most smartphones now include a conversion utility. But if you can just remember that 1 inch = 25.4 millimeters, you can easily convert from metric (not "meteric") to English and vice versa.
