      1. I have a retractable tape measure with inches on one edge, and centimetres on the other. That has worked well for me since so many things have ‘gone metric’ over here. 🙂

  1. Love your answers 🙂 I knew the centimetre one too – isn’t it funny how certain numbers stick in your mind. I also know sine and cosine of 30, 45, and 60 degrees – don’t ask me why.

    1. Thank you, Jonathan. I have a few oddities that stuck with me over the years – of course all the computer based numbers, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096. I cannot read hex anymore though. Math and I have a long and difficult relationship.
