CONVERSION NUMERIC OF METRIC MEASURE

__CONVERSION NUMERIC OF METRIC MEASURE__

**In the above all
discussion, we can now understand that as per the state of the product unit
measurement should be different. For the liquid state of the product unit should be
‘Liter’, for a solid product we use ‘Gram’ or ‘Kilogram’ and to express distance
we use the unit ‘Meter’ or ‘Kilometer’ mostly. **

**Now we will learn how
to convert from big units to small units and small units to big units. Some examples are
given below for better understand.**

**Please remember for
addition, subtraction, multiplication and division measure unit should be the
same unit or those given measurement unit should be converted into the same
measure unit otherwise addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
cannot be done.**

**Exam.1)
convert 2kg, 15g, 8cg, 3 mg to mg**

**Ans.) Before
solving the problem first read the problem sum very carefully. From the problem
you can find, entire problem should be converted into ‘Milligram(mg)’ unit.**

__
__

**So, before conversion
we observe all the given higher measure unit and convert to lower measure unit
as desired and then add to find the exact desired answer.**

**Exam.2)
convert 3hg, 8dag, 5dg to cg**

**Ans.) Before
solving the problem first read the problem sum very carefully. From the problem
you can find, the entire problem should be converted into the ‘Centigram(cg)’ unit.**

**So, before conversion
we observe all the given higher measure unit and convert to lower measure unit
as desired and then add to find the exact desired answer.**

**Exam.3)
convert 2dag, 6g, 12dg, 4cg, 7mg to kg and find out the sums.**

**Ans.) Before
solving the problem first read the problem sum very carefully. From the problem
you can find, entire problem should be converted into ‘Kilogram(kg)’ unit.**

**So,
before conversion we observe all the given higher measure unit and convert to lower
measure unit as desired and then add to find the exact desired answer**

**Exam.4) convert
5kg, 6g, 12dg, 4cg, 7mg to dag**

**Ans.) Before
solving the problem first read the problem sum very carefully. From the problem
you can find, entire problem should be converted into ‘Decagram(dag)’ unit.**

**So, the result
is 500.724700 kg (Ans.)**

**Now we will learn
some simplified method of conversion from lower measurement unit to higher
measurement unit –**

**
1) Convert 12 kL 25 L to Kiloliter (kL)**

**
25**

**
Ans.) 12 Kl 25 L = 12 ----------
= 12.025 kL (Ans.)**

** 1000**

**2) Convert 8 hg 52 g to Hectogram (hg)**

** 52 **

**Ans.) 8
hg 352 g = 8 --------- hg = 8.52
hg (Ans.)**

**
100**

**3)
Convert 25 dag 257 mg to Decagram (dag)**

** 257 **

**Ans.) 25
dag 257 mg = 25 --------- dag = 25.0257 dag (Ans.)**

** 10000**

**Now we will try to
understand the relation of measuring unit in some different way for better
understanding -**

__From
Higher measurement unit to lower measurement unit __

**From the above
chart/picture we can observe that for every measuring unit, the difference is 10.
That’s mean to reach from a measuring unit to the very next measuring unit the
score should be 10 only, but from one unit to next two, three or more than
three steps if you would like to reach then score should be measured like
multiplication of 10 with 10 and that will depend on as per the requirement.**

**For example, if we
wish to convert ‘Kilogram (Kg)’ to ‘Gram(g)’ then, count how many
steps you need to jump from ‘Gram’ to ‘Kilogram’. Now you will find there are
three steps, Gram - Decagram - Hectogram - Kilogram. So, 1 Kilogram
should be; 1 Kilogram (Kg) = 10 x 10 x 10 Gram = 1000 Gram (g)
(multiplication of three 10 for three measurement Unit)**

**Similarly if we wish to
find ‘Milligram’ from ‘Hectogram’ then count how many steps you need to jump
from ‘Milligram’ to ‘Hectogram’. Now you will find there are five steps, **

**Milligram - Centigram
- Decigram - Gram - Decagram - Hectogram. So, 1 Hectogram should be ; 1 Hectogram
(hg) = 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 x 10 Milligram = 1,00,000 Milligram (mg)
(multiplication of five 10 for five measurement Unit)**

__From
Lower measurement unit to Higher measurement unit__

**From the above
chart/picture we can observe that for every measuring unit, the difference is 1/10. That’s mean to reach from a measuring unit to the very next measuring unit the
score should be 1/10 only, but from one unit to the next two, three or more than
three steps if you would like to reach then score should be measured like
multiplication of 1/10 with 1/10 and that will depend on as per the
requirement.**

**For example, if we
wish to convert ‘Gram(g)’ to ‘Kilogram(kg)’ then, count how many
steps you need to jump from ‘Kilogram’ to ‘Gram’. Now you will find there are
three steps, Kilogram - Hectogram - Decagram - Gram. So, 1 Kilogram
should be ; 1 Gram (g) = 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 Kilogram = 1/1000 Kilogram
(kg) (multiplication of three 1/10 for three measurement Unit)**

**Similarly if we wish
to find ‘Hectogram’ from ‘ Milligram’ then count how many steps you need to
jump from ‘Hectogram’ to ‘Milligram’. Now you will find there are five
steps, **

**Hectogram - Decagram
- Gram - Decigram - Centigram - Milligram. So, 1 Milligram (mg) should
be; 1 Milligram(mg) = 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 x 1/10 Hectogram = 1/1,00,000
Hectogram(hg) = 0.00001 Hectogram(hg) (multiplication of five 1/10 for five
measurement Unit)**
