In this activity, we will learn about conversion, with the help of a conversion chart.
Use the conversion chart to help you:
1 kilometre = 1,000 metres
1 kilogram = 1,000 grams
1 litre = 1,000 millilitres
1 metre = 100 centimetres
Convert 8 metres into centimetres.
We look at the conversion chart to see where it has metres and centimetres.
We can see that there are 100 centimetres in 1 metre.
So, in 8 metres there must be 8 x 100 = 800 cm
8 metres = 800 cm
Let's try another one.
Convert 6,000 ml into litres.
Look at the chart to find where we have millilitres and litres.
We can see that there are 1,000 ml in a litre.
So, we can see that 6,000 ÷ 1,000 = 6 litres
6,000 ml = 6 litres
