## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that an ancient artifact is measured to be 2 cubits (UK) in length.

Convert this length from cubits (UK) to Handbreadth.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in cubits (uk) is:

Length_{(Cubits (UK))} = 2

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from cubits (uk) to handbreadth is:

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = Length_{(Cubits (UK))} / 0.16666666666920665

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Cubits (UK))} = 2** in the above formula.

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 2 / 0.16666666666920665

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 12

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **2 cubit** is equal to **12 handbreadth**.

The length is **12 handbreadth**, in handbreadth.

### Consider that a historical building's entrance is 4 cubits (UK) tall.

Convert this height from cubits (UK) to Handbreadth.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in cubits (uk) is:

Length_{(Cubits (UK))} = 4

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from cubits (uk) to handbreadth is:

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = Length_{(Cubits (UK))} / 0.16666666666920665

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Cubits (UK))} = 4** in the above formula.

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 4 / 0.16666666666920665

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 24

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **4 cubit** is equal to **24 handbreadth**.

The length is **24 handbreadth**, in handbreadth.
