I'll be happy to do math that I am assigned! Yay!

To figure this out, we must know the base comparisons. This just requires memorization, unfortunately.

\(1in=0.0254m\)

I happen to know that this is the base comparison. However, I'll have to do 2 conversions. One for the appropriate number of inches and one for meters to millimeters. Here it goes!

\(\frac{1in}{0.0254m}=\frac{12in}{xm}\) | This is a proportion. Solve by cross multiplying. |

\(x=12*0.0254=0.3048m\) | Therefore, this shows that 12 inches is equivalent to 0.3048 meters. Now, we must convert to millimeters. |

\(\frac{1000mm}{1m}=\frac{ymm}{0.3048m}\) | Cross multiply a second time. |

\(y=0.3048*1000=304.8mm\) | |

Bam! Done! 12 inches = 304.8 millimeters!
