divide in/lbs by 12 and you get ft/lbs... multiply ft/lbs by 12 and you get in/lbs... yes its that easy.

Does anyone teach dimensional analysis anymore?
I'm not trying to be a jerk. It's a simple skill you can teach a high school kid in an hour or so, and will come in handy for the rest of your life.

Old enough to drive yet cannot convert in/lbs to ft/lbs. You would have been much better off with N m to ft/lbs.

No, schools just expect you to cheat and use google to get your answer any way.

Dimensional analysis comes in handy a lot, especially as a biochem major
