Metric System, how do you do these
I didn't know what Category to put this in so it's in here.
Okay so I'm not understanding how to do these:
6.2 kilograms= _______ grams
78.36 liters= ________ milliliters
12.3 meters= ________ centimeters
I really just have no clue(Thinking)
What do I need to know to get the answer to these and such..
