'Units of Measure: Converting Litres and Millilitres' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Year:  Year 5 Maths worksheets

Curriculum topic:   Measurement

Curriculum subtopic:   Convert Between Metric Measurements

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

Remember that there are 1000 ml in 1 litre.

For mixed quantities, you should convert to litres or to millilitres.


e.g. How many 150 ml glasses can be filled from a 1 litre bottle?








We convert 1 litre to ml so that we are working entirely in ml.


We need to work out 1000 ÷ 150.

This is equal to 100 ÷ 15 = 20 ÷ 3 = 6 r 2


So 6 glasses can be filled.


6 x 150 = 900, so 100 ml will remain in the bottle.
