1. Metric Equivalents • A can of Coke contains 355 mL. How many liters does that equal? • An apple weighs 0.1 kg. What does it weigh in grams or milligrams? • A Tylenol or aspirin tablet weighs 250 mg. How many grams or kilograms is that?

2. Summary – Metric Equivalents To convert from: • Larger metric units to smaller metric units (kg g  mg), you multiple by 10 for each move to the right. • Shortcut - move the decimal point 1 space to the right () for each space you count from the “FROM” unit to the “TO” unit.

3. Summary – Metric Equivalents To convert from: • Smaller metric units to larger metric units (kg  g  mg), you divide by 10 for each move to the left. • Shortcut - move the decimal point 1 space to the left () for each space you count from the “FROM” unit to the “TO” unit.
