## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a piece of land is measured at 80 links (US survey).

Convert this length from links (US survey) to Handbreadth.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in link (us survey) is:

Length_{(link (US survey))} = 80

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from link (us survey) to handbreadth is:

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = Length_{(link (US survey))} / 0.37878712121671515

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(link (US survey))} = 80** in the above formula.

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 80 / 0.37878712121671515

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 211.2004

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **80 li** is equal to **211.2004 handbreadth**.

The length is **211.2004 handbreadth**, in handbreadth.

### Consider that a boundary marker is set 30 links (US survey) from the starting point.

Convert this distance from links (US survey) to Handbreadth.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in link (us survey) is:

Length_{(link (US survey))} = 30

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from link (us survey) to handbreadth is:

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = Length_{(link (US survey))} / 0.37878712121671515

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 30 / 0.37878712121671515

Length_{(Handbreadth)} = 79.2002

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **30 li** is equal to **79.2002 handbreadth**.

The length is **79.2002 handbreadth**, in handbreadth.

The US survey link is defined as one-hundredth of a US survey chain, where one US survey chain is 66 feet long. This unit provides precision for finer measurements in land surveying and mapping.

Links (US survey) are used in land surveying to measure shorter distances and ensure accuracy in property measurement and mapping activities in the United States.

## Handbreadth

A handbreadth is a historical unit of length used to measure small distances, typically based on the width of a hand. One handbreadth is approximately equivalent to 4 inches or about 0.1016 meters.

The handbreadth is defined as the width of a person's hand, measured from the edge of the thumb to the edge of the little finger when the hand is spread out. This unit was used for practical measurements in various contexts, including textiles and construction.

Handbreadths were used in historical measurement systems for assessing lengths and dimensions where precise tools were not available. Although less common today, the unit provides historical context for traditional measurement practices and everyday use in different cultures.
