Useful Information, Chart 1

Product: School Smart Hard Cover Marbleback Composition Book

Sold by Walmart for $1.87

This chart is on the outside back cover. What is interesting is that the book has another Useful Information chart on the inside back cover, just in case one wasn’t enough. I would guess that about 90% of the information is the same in both charts, though there are differences. You may notice that there are no metric-to-metric or metric-to-U.S. standard conversion tables.

Back coverHidden Highlights:

  • A cord of wood is equivelent to a pile 8 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 4 feet high;
  • 6 feet = 1 fathom;
  • 1 acre = 160 square rods;
  • 40 square rods (i.e., 1/4 acre) = 1 rood; therefore
  • 1 acre = 4 roods
