# Conversions

One of the more common conversions plaguing those who live in the United States is the use of the American system versus the metric system. Most of the world, not including the United States, Burma, and Liberia, use the metric system as their standard measuring system which was adopted in France in 1791. The two are becoming more and more interchangeable in different fields, therefore it is important to be able to convert from one type of measurement to the other.

If you are dealing with currency or measurements from different areas of the globe, they will usually not convert easily. Many of us have forgotten the formulas to make these conversions soon after we left high school, and there are just too many formulas to remember them all. It is impossible for anyone to keep up with the exchange rates on a daily basis.

Whether you need to convert temperature for that international trip, cooking measurements for a delicious recipe, or how many Euros equal a dollar, you can find a calculator to meet your needs in this section.
