Steps to Convert Between 2 Prefixes:

  1. Find the beginning number
  2. Find the ending number
  3. Figure out the direction
  4. Figure out how many steps to take in that direction
  5. Move the decimal point!
Write each of the following measurements:

  1. three hundred four and five tenths kilometers
  2. five thousand seventy two and three hundredths decimeters
  3. one thousand thirty eight and nineteen thousandths kilograms
Metric Marine Corps Song
This song is meant to be singed aloud to help you remember the steps to do:


I don't know but I've been told,
30 Celsius isn't cold.

Metric system is my friend,
Big or small it's based on 10.

You don't have to have a clue,
Moving points is all you do.

Move left........move right,
Move the point to left or right,
Even if its out of sign.

Count the steps and move the dot,
There's no more that's all I've got.

Convert the following measurements:

  1. 45.3 cm = __________ hm

  5. 999.9 cL = __________ dL
  6. 56 km = __________ m
  7. 445.6 mL = __________ L
