meters grams liters Converting Units kilometers centimeters kilograms

We use different metric units to measure :-
Distance Capacity Weight We can use our knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 or 1000 to change or convert measurements in one unit to measurements in another unit.

CONVERTING DECIMALS THINGS TO REMEMBER:
Multiply -- (the number gets larger) Divide -- (the number gets smaller) kilo- hecto- deka- meter . deci- centi- milli- gram Liter Remember this mnemonic device to help you remember the order of the metric prefixes: Kangaroos Hop Down Mountains Drinking Chocolate Milk

We are going to use our knowledge about multiplying and dividing by 100 to convert centimeters to meters and to convert meters to centimeters.
