so we have 256 place a decimal point between the first two digits (2 and 5) to get 2.56 how many spots must we move the decimal to get back to 256 ?

oh wait, I'm in the wrong section
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
ok so 6 L to mL
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
use something like this chart http://www.notredameacademy.ca/docs/homework/Lesson%201a%20-%20Metric%20Ladder%20Powerpoint.pdf

and wrong number too. lol. I got 6000 L.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
`6 L = 6000 mL` I think you meant to say?
j2lie
  • j2lie
oh I was right. 6000 mL
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes `6 L = 6000 mL` is true
j2lie
  • j2lie
ok.

For #2 are you saying that `1.3 g = 0.13 kg` ?
j2lie
  • j2lie
yes.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
that is incorrect
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
go to this link for the basic template http://www.notredameacademy.ca/docs/homework/Lesson%201a%20-%20Metric%20Ladder%20Powerpoint.pdf start at the "basic unit" block. In this case, it's grams then move until you get to the "kilo" block. Count out the number of spaces and take note of the direction you move

I moved to the left 3 times.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so you move the decimal point in `1.3` three places to the left
j2lie
  • j2lie
Yes, but you don't need the zeroes in this case?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what do you mean?
j2lie
  • j2lie
Never mind. Do you need to add zeroes if you move to the left, because I did that for every problem like it?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes as you move the decimal point to the left, you will have 0s in between so `1.3` turns into `0.13` after moving the decimal point once to the left then we will have `0.013` after 2 moves to the left then we will have `0.0013` after 3 moves to the left
j2lie
  • j2lie
So you need the zeroes?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yes if you leave them out then you'd get back to 0.13 or something
j2lie
  • j2lie
Ok. Can you check the rest to make sure they are right. I'm sorry.

they don't have Gm on the chart, but we can add it in let's add in mega (for million) and giga (for billion) |dw:1442713591106:dw|
