In section, you will learn how to do conversion between different metric units like centimeter, kilometer, centigram, milliliter etc.
Example 1 :
Convert 3.5 decimeters into centimeters.
Solution :
Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.
3.5 dm = 3.5 x 10 cm
3.5 dm = 35 cm
Hence, 3.5 decimeters is equal to 35 centimeters.
Example 2 :
Convert 2 meters into centimeters.
Solution :
Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.
2 m = 2 x 100 cm
2 m = 200 cm
Hence, 2 m is equal to 200 cm.
Example 3 :
Convert 5280 meters into kilometers.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
5280 meters = 5280 / 1000 kilometers
5280 meters = 5.28 kilometers
Hence, 5280 meters is equal to 5.28 kilometers.
Example 4 :
Convert 30 decimeters into meters.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
30 decimeters = 30/10 meters
30 decimeters = 3 meters
Hence, 30 decimeters is equal to 3 meters.
Example 5 :
Convert 2 kilograms in to grams.
Solution :
Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.
2 kg = 2 x 1000 grams
2 kg = 2000 grams
Hence, 2 kg is equal to 2000 grams.
Example 6 :
Convert 3.5 deciliters into centiliters.
Solution :
Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.
3.5 deciliters = 3.5 x 10 centiliters
3.5 deciliters = 35 centiliters
Hence, 3.5 deciliters is equal to 35 centiliters.
Example 7 :
Convert 24 hectometers into kilometers
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
24 hectometers = 24/10 kilometers
24 hectometers = 2.4 kilometers
Hence, 24 hectometers is equal to 2.4 kilometers.
Example 8 :
Convert 48 milligrams into centigrams.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
48 milligrams = 48 / 10 centigrams
48 milligrams = 4.8 centigrams
Hence, 48 milligrams is equal to 4.8 centigrams.
Example 9 :
Convert 5000 grams into kilograms.
Solution :
Here, we convert smaller unit into bigger unit. So we have to divide.
5000 grams = 5000 / 1000 kg
5000 grams = 5 kg
Hence, 5000 grams is equal to 5 kilograms.
Example 10 :
Convert 0.5 decigrams into centigrams.
Solution :
Here, we convert bigger unit into smaller unit. So we have to multiply.
0.5 decigrams = 0.5 x 10 centigrams
0.5 decigrams = 5 centigrams
Hence, 0.5 decigrams is equal to 5 centigrams.
