## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a ship anchors in water that is 30 fathoms deep.

Convert this depth from fathoms to Pica.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from fathoms to pica is:

Length_{(Pica)} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 0.0023148148149559258

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Fathoms)} = 30** in the above formula.

Length_{(Pica)} = 30 / 0.0023148148149559258

Length_{(Pica)} = 12960

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 fath** is equal to **12960 pica**.

The length is **12960 pica**, in pica.

### Consider that a diver descends to a depth of 10 fathoms.

Convert this depth from fathoms to Pica.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in fathoms is:

Length_{(Fathoms)} = 10

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from fathoms to pica is:

Length_{(Pica)} = Length_{(Fathoms)} / 0.0023148148149559258

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Fathoms)} = 10** in the above formula.

Length_{(Pica)} = 10 / 0.0023148148149559258

Length_{(Pica)} = 4320

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **10 fath** is equal to **4320 pica**.

The length is **4320 pica**, in pica.
