## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a piece of cloth is measured to be 3 spans in width.

Convert this width from spans to Chains.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in span (cloth) is:

Length_{(Span (cloth))} = 3

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from span (cloth) to chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Span (cloth))} / 87.99999996378976

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Span (cloth))} = 3** in the above formula.

Length_{(Chains)} = 3 / 87.99999996378976

Length_{(Chains)} = 0.0340909091049368

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **3 span** is equal to **0.0340909091049368 ch**.

The length is **0.0340909091049368 ch**, in chains.

### Consider that a scarf is 2 spans long.

Convert this length from spans to Chains.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in span (cloth) is:

Length_{(Span (cloth))} = 2

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from span (cloth) to chains is:

Length_{(Chains)} = Length_{(Span (cloth))} / 87.99999996378976

**Substitution:**

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

Length_{(Chains)} = 2 / 87.99999996378976

Length_{(Chains)} = 0.0227272727366245

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **2 span** is equal to **0.0227272727366245 ch**.

The length is **0.0227272727366245 ch**, in chains.
