# CLASS-5MEASUREMENT OF WEIGHT - HIGHER UNIT TO LOWER UNIT

Expressing From Higher Unit to Lower Units -

1) Express in g, dg, cg and mg :

a)  3.164 g

b)  0.75 g

g   dg    cg    mg

3.164  g   =        3    1      6     4   =  31 dg  6 cg  4 mg

0.75  g   =        0    7      5      0   =       7 dg  5 cg

Here we arrange the digits of the given measure in the place value chart (excluding the decimal point), putting the digits in their proper places (starting from ‘g’ and following the place value chart), taking the vacant places as zero. The integral part of the given measure (the part before the decimal point) is together placed under ‘g’ and the decimal part of the

given measure (the part after the decimal point) is placed one digit each under ‘dg’, ‘cg’ and ‘mg’.

2) Express in kg, hg, dag and g :

a)  16.485 kg

d)  0.48 kg

kg      hg    dag      g

16.485 kg  =   16       4      8        5   =  16 kg  4 hg  8 dag  5 g

0.48 kg   =   0        4      8        0   =         4 hg   8 dag

Here we arrange the digits of the given measure in the place value chart (excluding the decimal point), putting the digits in their proper places (starting from ‘kg’ and following the place value chart), taking the vacant places as zero. The integral part of the given measure (the part before the decimal point) is together placed under ‘kg’ and the decimal part of the given measure (the part after the decimal point) is placed one digit each under ‘hg’, ‘dag’ and ‘g’.
