    Question 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..

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

    Common sense can be used.
