# CLASS-5MEASUREMENT - EXPRESSING LOWER UNIT TO HIGHER UNIT

Expressing from Lower Units to Higher Unit -

1) Using decimal notation express in grams :

a) 2 g 2 dg 7 cg 1 mg

b) 8 cg

g   dg    cg   mg

a) 2 g 2 dg 7 cg 1 mg  =     2    2     7     1   =  2.271 g

b) 8 cg                  =                         =  0.080 g =  0.08

Here we first arrange the given units in their place value chart, putting the digits in their proper places, taking the vacant places as zero. Then we express the given measure in the same unit ‘g’ by putting a decimal point after the digit (or digits) written under ‘g’ in the place value chart.

2) Using decimal notation express in kg :-

a)  5 kg 5 hg 1 dag 5 g

b)  6 kg 5 g

e) 10 kg 6 hg 5 dag

kg   hg   dag   g

5 kg 5 hg 1 dag 5 g  =    5    5     1     5   =    5.515 kg

6 kg 5 g               =    6    0     0     5   =    6.005 kg

10 kg 6 hg 5 dag      =   10    6     5     0   =    10.65 kg

Here we first arrange the given units in their place value chart, putting the digits in their proper places, taking the vacant places as zero. Then we express the given measure in the same unit ‘kg’ by putting a decimal point after the digit (or digits) written under ‘kg’ in the place value chart.
