If, then, else help (maybe.)
The calculations are for a milling machine which uses the formulas as a guide line for operating speeds. The answers are in specified units and the formulas differ depending on if you're using the metric system or imperial system.
Ideally (this is where I need help) there is 2 radio buttons at the top of the form which you can toggle to and from metric and imperial and in turn the formula being used would switch causing the answer to be in either millimeters or inches.
I was wondering if anyone could provide some insight into how I could go about this. My JS knowledge is probably a 0.2 on a scale of 1-10 so any help would be greatly appreciated. What I believe to be the answer is some if,else statements but any other suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance =/

first of all, there are some other problems to tackle first:
- nested <form>s are not allowed
- <font> is outdated (use CSS instead)
- the language attribute is outdated too (use
with()construct is unnecessary
