Then multiply by 700 or divide by 700, as appropriate. After a while, you will find it is easier to work with metric than to need to divide by 12 or divide by 16 for fractions of an inch.
: In the past I contributed the formula for
: determining the scale of model in english
: measurements because the U.S. is still an
: english measurement country.The rest of the
: world however is meteric. Which includes
: Korea,Japan and China.
: I don't work with the meteric system every
: The meteric system is based on the
: which a whole system of measurements were
: developed.If were going to measure scale on
: 1/700 scale warships or others should we use
: meteric measurement?I'm not a mathematican
: I did learn this. If we take the meter if
: made into meter stick and placed alongside
: it's equvalent the yard stick (36 inches or
: 3 feet)
: you'll find the meter is longer. (39.37
: As previously mentioned any one here
: experienced with working the meteric system
: enough to determine scale and know formula
: for it?
