What measurement goes with what?
Liters = liquid Meters = length Grams = weight

“THE STEPS” k = kilo h = hecto d = deca unit= liter, meter, gram
d = deci c = centi m = milli

“THE STEPS” A catchy saying is: King Henry Died by
unit c m A catchy saying is: King Henry Died by Drinking Chocolate Milk

“THE STEPS” k h d unit c m As you travel up the step, you are traveling in the right direction. As you travel down the steps, you are traveling in the left direction.

“THE STEPS” k h d unit c m When move down the ladder,
move the decimal to the right. When move up the ladder, move the decimal to the left.

474 kg = _________ cg k h d unit c m 474 kg = 47,400,000 cg
Begin with the token on the kilo- step. While moving the toke to the centi-, count how many steps you take (not including kilo). Since it was moved DOWN the steps 5 times, move the decimal to the right 5 times. 474 kg = 47,400,000 cg

0.2 ml= _________ cl k h d unit c m 0.2 ml = 0.02 cl
Begin with the token on the milli- step. While moving the toke to the centi-, count how many steps you take (not including kilo). Since it was moved UP the steps 1 time, move the decimal to the right 1 time. 0.2 ml = 0.02 cl

Now you try these: 0.001 km = ____________ m 0.25 L =____________ dL
6.689 cm = ____________ m 81.5 cm = ____________ m 2.6 kg = ____________ mg 5 m = ____________ cm 9.09 dL = ____________ cL 50 m = ____________ km

Answers: 1 m 2.5 dL m 0.815 m 2,600,000 mg 500 cm 90.9 cL 0.05 km
