5. 5. A. <ul><li>121 cm = 1.21 m </li></ul><ul><li>Cm to m would be 2 jumps to the left </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal 2 jumps to the left </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
6. 6. Q. <ul><li>884 m = __________dm </li></ul>
7. 7. A. <ul><li>884 m = 8840 dm </li></ul><ul><li>Meters to decimeters would be 1 jump to the right </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal one jump to the right </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
8. 8. Q. <ul><li>621 g = _______dag </li></ul>
9. 9. A. <ul><li>621 g = 62.1 dag </li></ul><ul><li>Grams to dekagrams would be one jump to the left. </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal one jump to the left </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
10. 10. Q. <ul><li>.50 kg = ______g </li></ul>
11. 11. A. <ul><li>.50 kg = 500 g </li></ul><ul><li>Kilograms to grams is 3 jumps to the right </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal 3 jumps to the right </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
12. 12. Q. <ul><li>3742 mm = _________ hm </li></ul>
13. 13. A. <ul><li>3742 mm = .03742 hm </li></ul><ul><li>Millimeters to hectometers is 5 jumps to the left </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal 5 jumps to the left </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
14. 14. Q. <ul><li>9.6 g = __________ kg </li></ul>
15. 15. A. <ul><li>9.6 g = .0096 kg </li></ul><ul><li>Grams to kilograms is 3 jumps to the left, </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal 3 jumps to the left </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
16. 16. Q. <ul><li>.17 m = _______cm </li></ul>
17. 17. A. .17m = 17 cm Meters to centimeters is two jumps to the right Move the decimal 2 jumps to the right BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
18. 18. Q. <ul><li>.8623 kl = _________ L </li></ul>
19. 19. A. <ul><li>.8723 kl = 862.3 L </li></ul><ul><li>Kiloliters to liters is 3 jumps to the right </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal 3 times to the right </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
20. 20. Q. <ul><li>8.7 L = ________hl </li></ul>
21. 21. A. <ul><li>8.7L = .087hL </li></ul><ul><li>Liters to hectoliters is 2 jumps to the left </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal 2 jumps to the left </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
22. 22. Q. <ul><li>500 mm = _______dm </li></ul>
23. 23. A. <ul><li>500 mm = 5 dm </li></ul><ul><li>Millimeters to decimeters is 2 jumps to the left </li></ul><ul><li>Move the decimal two jumps to the left </li></ul>BASE Kilo k Hecto h Deka da Deci d Centi c Milli m m. L, g
24. 24. Q. <ul><li>432 ml = _____cm 3 </li></ul>
25. 25. A. <ul><li>432 ml = 432 cm 3 </li></ul><ul><li>No, this is not a mistake: Your notes say that a ml=cc=cm 3 </li></ul><ul><li>This means that 10 ml=10cc=10cm 3 </li></ul><ul><li>It doesn’t matter what the number is, it would be the same for all 3. In this case 432ml=432cc=432cm 3 </li></ul>
26. 26. Q. <ul><li>.07L = _______cc </li></ul>
27. 27. A. <ul><li>.07 L = 70 cc </li></ul><ul><li>Some of you wanted to say it was the same thing (.07), but a L is not a ml! </li></ul><ul><li>ml=cc </li></ul><ul><li>1 st you would have to convert the L to a ml (move the decimal 3 jumps to the right) </li></ul><ul><li>You now have 70ml </li></ul><ul><li>Since a ml=cc, 70ml= 70cc </li></ul>
