Converting Dried Beans to Cooked/Canned

Not sure how to measure dried beans? Here are some helpful conversions:
Two cups of dried beans = one pound
A heaping half-cup of dried beans = one 15-ounce can
One and a half-cups cooked beans, drained = one 15 ounce can
One cup dried beans = 3 cups cooked beans
One pound dried beans = 6 cups cooked beans
-based on information from the U.S. Dry Bean Council  via frugal living
