Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet you will learn about conversion, with the help of a conversion chart.



Change the measurements into smaller units with the help of the conversion chart given below.

8 metres = _______ centimetres


Use the conversion chart to help you.

1 kilometre = 1000 metres

1 kilogram = 1000 grams

1 litre = 1000 millilitres

1 metre = 100 centimetres



There are 100 centimetres in 1 metre.

So there are 8 × 100 centimetres in 8 × 1 metres.


8 metres = 800 centimetres
