Unit conversions. I have down that four quarts make a gallon. Inches - feet - yards, I'm okay there. Everything else? Frak if I know!
You'll find metric so much easier no need to convert. Unless you are converting from one to another. Then the very quick way which will give you an apprxomiaton is

1lb = 0.454Kg So just half any amount to convert lb to kilo, double to covert from kilos to lb

Tempature is a little more complex but to covert C to F

Double it and add 32.

To convert from F to C subtract 32 and half it.

(it's not 100% accurate but it's one you can do in your head)
