How many:

centimetres in a metre? 100

millilitres in a litre?
1000

grams in a kilogram?
1000
milli = 1000 times smaller

centi = 100 times smaller

deci = 10 times smaller
Convert 270000 milligrams to kg:
Converting with length, mass or capacity
kilo = 1000 times bigger

hecta = 100 times bigger

deca = 10 time bigger
milli = 1000 times smaller

centi = 100 times smaller

deci = 10 times smaller
Convert 270000 milligrams to kg:
270000 mg = 270 grams = 0.27 kg
Examples
Convert 6300 cm into metres.

Convert 0.6 g into milligrams.
Examples
Convert 6300 cm into metres.

6300 ÷ 100 = 63 metres

Convert 0.6 g into milligrams.

0.6 x 1000 = 600 milligrams
