CONVERSION OF DECIMAL UNIT OF LENGTH

__Conversion of Units of
Length -__

**To convert
a lower unit into a higher unit [like
decimetre (dm) to metre (m), centimetre (cm)
to metre (m), etc.], we have to divide by
10 or 100 or 1000 etc. and to convert a higher unit into a lower unit [like kilometre (km) to metre (m), hectometre
(hm) to metre (m), 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.**
