- kilograms and grams;
- litres and millilitres;
- cm, mm, m and km.
For kg and g, l and ml, km and m, you need to multiply and divide by 1000.
Eg. 5 kg = 5000g, 4.64 l = 4640ml etc.
For mm and cm though you multiply and divide by 10.
Eg. 10 cm = 100 mm, 71 mm = 7.1 cm
Finally, there are 100 cm in a metre, so you multiply and divide by 100!
Eg. 234 cm = 2.34 m!
So you see, there's lots to remember!
