Home > Other > Problem…


We were trying to convert meters of cable to feet the other day, and obviously Google was the method of choice.  So one of the first results was this … It seems okay at first, but on further reading, one notices that they are a tad off.  Ex: “Multiply 29 with 3.2808399 and your converted value in feet is 11.417.”

Hrmm. I’ve been trying to figure out what they did wrong… Anyone got any idea?  I challenge you to tell me what they did wrong.

    There are 95.144357 feet in 29 meters, but I don’t really know ‘what they did wrong’. You might already know that that is how many feet are in 29 meters. But maybe even this answer is wrong… :S gotta go find a mathematician or something!! :P

    They were born, that is what they did wrong.

    Just for future reference, if you type what you want converted, measurements and all into Google, it’ll spit out the conversion right away, without a 3rd party site. As for what they did wrong, they couldn’t pluralize meters… as for what you did wrong, you trusted a site that can’t use proper grammar in a 4 word title.
