MEASUREMENT - CONVERSION OF DECIMAL UNIT OF WEIGHT

__Conversion of Units of Mass/Weight -__

**To convert a lower unit into a higher unit [like
decigram (dg) to gram (g), centigram (cg) to
gram (g), etc.], we have to divide
by 10 or 100 or 1000 etc. and to convert a higher unit into a lower
unit [like kilogram (kg) to gram
(g), hectogram (hg) to gram (g), etc.], we have to multiply by 10 or 100
or 1000 etc. We also know that division by
10, 100 ,1000, etc. is done by
shifting the decimal point to the left of the given number and multiplication
by 10, 100, 1000, etc. is done by shifting
the decimal point to the right of the given number.**
