Conversions: 1. It is all about the decimal place. ex. 10 cm = ? mm 2. Begin where you know. You are given 10 cm. If no decimal is present, the decimal is to the right of the numbers. 10 cm = 10.0 cm

**1 3. Move to where you want to go. Draw an arrow.**

- you want “mm”. Notice that the arrow moves the decimal 1 place to the right. Kilo Hecto Deka Unit Deci Centi Milli 1 = where you want to go (your target) 100

7
**1 5 1,500 m = 1.5 km Kilo Hecto Deka Unit Deci Centi Milli**

1500 m = ? km = where you want to go (your target) 1,500 m = 1.5 km

8
**1 7 17 cg = 0.17 g Kilo Hecto Deka Unit Deci Centi Milli 17 cg = ? g**

17 cg = ? g = where you want to go (your target) 17 cg = 0.17 g

9
**1 3 6 10.36 L = 10,360 mL Kilo Hecto Deka Unit Deci Centi Milli**

3 6 10.36 L = ? mL = where you want to go (your target) 10.36 L = 10,360 mL

10
**1 5 3 2 1,532 mm = 1.532 m Kilo Hecto Deka Unit Deci Centi Milli**

= where you want to go (your target) 1,532 mm = m

11
**5 6 56 kg = 560,000 dg Kilo Hecto Deka Unit Deci Centi Milli**

56 kg = ? dg = where you want to go (your target) 56 kg = 560,000 dg

12
