How to convert DP, PX, SP among each other, especially DP and SP?

I have known the difference among DP, SP and PX. And after searching this topic, I found nothing satisfying me completely. Maybe this post is a duplicate, but I still want to know what is the formula of converting from DP to PX, and DP to SP, from SP to PX, from PX to SP, from SP to DP, from DP to SP? I have known some codes to do this, but they are imperfect.

Answer Source

DP to PX:

public static int convertDpToPixels(float dp, Context context) {
    int px = (int) TypedValue.applyDimension(TypedValue.COMPLEX_UNIT_DIP, dp, context.getResources().getDisplayMetrics());
    return px; 

SP to PX:

public static int convertSpToPixels(float sp, Context context) {
    int px = (int) TypedValue.applyDimension(TypedValue.COMPLEX_UNIT_SP, sp, context.getResources().getDisplayMetrics());
    return px; 

DP to SP: (why would you need it?)

public static int convertDpToSp(float dp, Context context) {
    int sp = (int) (convertDpToPixels(dp, context) / (float) convertSpToPixels(dp, context));
    return sp;

Please correct me if I'm wrong in the last one, made it up just now.
