Test your metric knowledge! The FHSAA is making a big push towards using the metric system, so it's a good idea to at least learn the increments that pertain to the Pole Vault (1.5 - 6 meters). Before and after that, who cares! Unless you're a long/triple jumper, thrower, etc. But we're not, we're pole vaulters.

Look at the metric number below and try to guess what the feet/inches equivalent is. Then click the 'Show Imperial' button to see if you were right. To get a new metric number to solve, click the green 'New Number' button. Use the table below for assistance.

Hint: To make it easy, consider this conversion and do the math in your head.
5 centimeters = 2 inches
10 centimeters = 4 inches
15 centimeters = 6 inches
30 centimeters = 1 foot
Example: If 2 meters = 6'6", then 2m + 30cm (2.30) = 7'6". Now lets add 6" to that. 2.30 + 15cm (2.45) = 8'0".
