Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I am trying to calculate a price for sheet glass sized 2134x3660 mm. The cost per sheet was quoted at $4.60 sqm. How much would the sheet cost?

There are 1000 mm in one meter, so:

2134 mm / 1000 = 2.134 m

3660 mm / 1000 = 3.660 m

2.134 m * 3.660 m = 7.81 m^2

7.81 m^2 * $4.60/m^2 = $35.93

I picked up an almost cubed aquarium tonight. Just need someone to check my math skills.

The tank size is 25" x 18" x 25". I have no idea how many gallons the tank holds, but I did the math and Im assuming the water volume capacity is 60.5 gallons.

25" x 18" x 25" = 11,250/1,728 = 60.5 gallons

Is that right?

25 in * 25 in * 18 in = 11,250 cubic inches. There are 231 cu.in. in 1 gallon, so: 11,250 cu.in. / 231 cu.in./gallon (US) = 48.7 gallons

Hello,

I have a similar calculation.

One of my suppliers is charging £36.50 for a 225mm x 170mm product. I need to know the cost per mm he is charging to find out his pricing guide?

Thanks in advance for any help
