## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a boundary fence is 40 rods long.

Convert this length from rods to Chains.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in rod is:

Length_{(Rod)} = 40

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from rod to chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Rod)} / 3.9999999979883203

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Rod)} = 40** in the above formula.

Length_{(Chains)} = 40 / 3.9999999979883203

Length_{(Chains)} = 10

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **40 rd** is equal to **10 ch**.

The length is **10 ch**, in chains.

### Consider that a farmer marks a field boundary using 25 rods.

Convert this distance from rods to Chains.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in rod is:

Length_{(Rod)} = 25

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from rod to chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Rod)} / 3.9999999979883203

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Rod)} = 25** in the above formula.

Length_{(Chains)} = 25 / 3.9999999979883203

Length_{(Chains)} = 6.25

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **25 rd** is equal to **6.25 ch**.

The length is **6.25 ch**, in chains.
