# Thread: Metric System, how do you do these

1. ## 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
What do I need to know to get the answer to these and such..

2. $\times 1000$

$\times 1000$

$\times 100$

Metric system is so confusing!

And? Are those the answers to the problems?
I need to understand how to do them.

4. You have 3 conversion problems, I gave you 3 conversion factors.

Common sense can be used.
