    So mg means milligrams and dg means decigrams. How much smaller is a milligram than a gram? Do you know? (I want to make sure I'm not just giving you the answer) :)

    so I have a quiz on Tuesday which is on converting factor and density which I am bad at

    Okay, so here's what you need to know. There are 1,000 milligrams in a gram.

    And there are 10 grams in a decigram, so there are 10000 milligrams in a decigram.

    \[7.02mg*1dg/1000\]

    so the answer will be 0.00702dg

    Honestly... I have NO idea... I just used an online converter for that one. Let me find you a formula. :)

    So 1 meter = 3.28 feet.

    @misaki12 you mean decigrams right?

    Well if so always start from the conversion factor ask yourself mg = miligrams dg = decigrams We are asked to convert 7.02 mg to decigrams right?

    \[\frac{ 1 decigram }{ 100 miligrams }\]

    always ensure that the factor you want to cancel out is in the denominator and that's milligrams. we have 7.02 milligrams so that's why we set up the conversion factor with milligrams in the denominator

    okay so instead of the 1000 milligram I should use 100mg

    @Misaki12, you see why I set it up that way right? how the milligrams cancel out and I'm left with decigrams in the end, that's the point of dimensional analysis, always look for the conversion factor first and ensure that the unit you want to get rid of is in the denominator while the unit you want in this case decigrams is in the numerator.
