'Measurement: Reading Capacity From a Scale' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Maths and Numerical Reasoning

Curriculum subtopic:   Reading Scales

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

In this worksheet, we will use the scale to measure the amount of liquid in each container.

Remember that there are 1000 millilitres in 1 litre.

The French for 1000 is mille.



How much liquid in millilitres is shown in this container?




There are 1000 millilitres (ml) in 1 litre, so each mark is worth 100 ml.

The liquid reaches the 9th mark.

9 × 100 = 900

So, there are 900 ml of liquid in this container.
