Converting from a larger unit to a smaller unit, multiply by moving the decimal place to the right the correct number of steps ex: 12.61dag = _______mg

Converting from a smaller unit to a larger unit, you divide and move the decimal place to the left the correct number of steps Ex: 65.4cm = ________m

Conversions from English to Metric 2.2 lbs = 1 kg 2.54 cm = 1 inch °F = °C ×1.8 + 32 °C = °F – 32 /1.8

Practice 1) 3.4 meters = ____ centimeters 2) 4.62 liters = _______deciliters 3) 647 milligrams = _____grams 4) 532 km = ______hm 5) 78.3 cm = ______m 6).985 daL = ________mL 7) 62.1 cm = ______m 8).545 kg = ________g 9) 8 in = _________cm 10) 107°F = __________°C
