Study the chart carefully! You may not be familiar with it, but an understanding of it will make it easy to do conversion

hm means hectometer. h stands for hecto and m stands for meter.

Ok you got the point!

Say for instance you want to convert 5 meters to millimeters. Just put 5 in the column where it says meter. Then, going from left to right, add zeros until you get to millimeter. The table below illustrates this.

Now, convert 4 dekameters to decimeters. Just put 4 in dekameter and add zeros until you get to decimeter.

Convert 8 cm to meter. Put 8 in cm. Add 0 until, you get to meter.This time, you will go to the left because meter is on the left side of centimeter.

When you go to the left, use a decimal point.

What if the number is higher or equal to 10?

Fir example, convert 56 meter to millimeter.

Here, just make sure you put 6 (the unit place) in meter!

Place 8 in millimeter and add zeros until you get to kilometers
