**Memory Tool Kilo Hecto Deca Deci Centi milli**

Remembering Prefixes from largest to smallest…. Think of your own sentence!! Kilo Hecto Deca (base) Deci Centi milli 1000 100 10 1/10 1/100 1/1000 Kids Have Dropped Dead Converting metrics

Converting To convert a smaller unit to a larger unit, move the decimal place to the left for each power of 10 difference between the two measurements or divide. For example: to convert from millimeter to meter move the decimal place 3 to the left because 1 meter is 103 times larger than 1 millimeter 35.0 mm = m To convert from a larger unit of measure to a smaller unit of measure; multiply or move the decimal place to the right one place for each power of 10 difference between the two units of measure. 0.035m = 35.0 mm
