2
Metric Conversions Using the Ladder Method Base Unit meter/ liter/gram To convert to a smaller unit, move decimal point to right. To convert to a larger unit, move decimal point to left.

3
Large Units Base Unit meter/ liter/gram Deka – 10 Units Kilo - 1000 Units Hecto – 100 Units To convert to a larger unit, move decimal point to left. Ex: 10 meters (m) = ______ km 10.0 m = 0.01 km

4
Smaller Units Base Unit meter/ liter/gram Deka – 10 Units Kilo - 1000 Units Hecto – 100 Units Deci – 0.1 (1/10) Units Centi – 0.01 (1/100) units Milli – 0.001 (1/1000) units To convert to a smaller unit, move decimal point to right. Ex: 10 meters (m) = ______ cm 10.0 m = 1000 cm

5
