Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

Remember that centi means a hundredth and milli means a thousandth.

1 cm is 1/100 of a metre and 1 cl is 1/100 of a litre.

1 mm is 1/1000 of a metre and 1 ml is 1/1000 of a litre.

 

so 10 mm = 1 cm and 10 ml = 1 cl

 

Example

Convert 24.5 cl to ml and l.

10 ml = 1 cl, so we multiply 24.5 by 10 to get 245 ml.

245/1000 = 0.245 litres

Answer: 24.5 cl = 245 ml and 0.245 l
