    1. Draw the table to record your analysis values for the wood block.  Use a ratio to compare measured centimeters to inches, in each dimension, for the wood block; reduce fractions such that the smallest value is 1.  

    Example:

    \[\dfrac{540 \text{ inches}}{15 \text{ yards}} = \dfrac{36 \text{in}}{1 \text{yd}} \nonumber \]
