I think you  guys are making this much more complicated than it has to be.....

It would be so much simpler to just stick with the old definition, which says The metre is defined as the length of the path travelled by light in a vacuum in 1/299 792 458 seconds.

....math nerd....  :o ;D
Hahahah! :D

Why don't you people do what the millennial-common-core-math-graduate does?  They "google it!"

Go to this link and type in 10 meters, get the answer and move to the head of the class.

That won't work for me, the bag in my vacuum is shorter than a meter.

Why do all that math, it makes my head hurt. Just pull out your range finder and let it tell you. My wife says when I say it is 6" it is really 4". :(

When I was in the Army navigatin' with a map and compass 100meters was 120paces. So I figured 30 paces was about 25 meters/yards give or take. A friend lazed it for me. Looks like for 66 years old ex-soldiers 25 meters is 35 paces now. So 100 meters is must be 140 paces for me now. Daddy use to tell me the legs are the first to go.

I'm sure glad we don't measure these distances in cubits!

I'll bet that MY cubit is longer than yours ...   ;D
