Units of measurement

Postby Guest » Fri Mar 28, 2008 4:58 am

I was reading a conversion chart of metric to US and saw the terms metric-"MADAM" to US "FACT" and you multiply by 3.280, (I think) to get the US measurement.

Will some one tell/explain what a madam & fact are. We have already had the jokes started on this.

Thanks in advance
