not understaning this as if you leave out the units promps

the calculation will be correct for whatever units are used

2 inch *3 inch = 6 inch

2 cm * 3 cm = 6 cm

I realy need to get a metric result from the imperial value. Therefore multiplying the end result of an imperial mesurement. Basicaly in the case of an imperial number added to the program multiplying this by 2.54
