Essential Question
How can you compare and convert metric units?
To convert from one unit to another within the metric system usually means moving a decimal point. If you can remember what the prefixes mean, you can convert within the metric system relatively easily by simply multiplying or dividing the number by the value of the prefix.

Using a map, Alex estimates the distance between his house and his grandparent’s house to be about 15,000 meters. About how many kilometers away from his grandparent’s house does Alex live?
The metric system is based on place value. Length, capacity, and mass each have a base unit (meter, liter, or gram) and use prefixes to show the relationship between larger and smaller units.

One Way Conversions Convert 15,000 meters to kilometers. Step 1
Find the relationship between the units.
There are 1,000 meters in 1 kilometer.
Step 2
Determine the operation to be used.
I am converting from a meter unit to a Kilometer unit, so I will divide.
Step 3
Convert So,
Alex’s house is 15 kilometers from his grand parent’s house.

Mathematical Processes
Choose two units in the chart. Explain how the two units are related.
The given chart is: Now,
From the given chart,
We can observe that
The two units are: Kilogram and Gram
Now,
We know that,
The relationship between 2 units are:
1 Kilogram = 1,000 Grams
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
The relationship between 2 units are:
1 Kilogram = 1,000 Grams

Another Way
Use a diagram.
Jamie made a bracelet 1.8 decimeters long. How many millimeters long is Jamie’s bracelet?

Convert 1.8 decimeters to millimeters. Step 1
Show 1.8 decimeters.
Since the unit is decimeters, place the decimal point so that decimeters are the whole number unit. Step 2
Convert.
Cross out the decimal point and rewrite it so that millimeters will be the whole number unit. Write a zero to the left of the decimal point to complete the whole number.
So,
1 decimeter = 100 millimeters

Step 3
Record the value with the new unit.
1.8 dm = 180 mm
So,
Jamie’s bracelet is 180 millimeters long.

Problem Solving

For 10-11, use the table.

Question 10.
Multi-Step Kelly made one batch of peanut and pretzel snack mix. How many grams does she need to add to the snack mix to make 2 kilograms? It is given that
Kelly made one batch of peanut and pretzel snack mix
Now,
The given table is: Now,
From the above table,
We can observe that
The weight of one batch of peanut and pretzel snack mix is: 1,425 g
Now,
We know that,
1 kg = 1,000 g
So,
2 kg = 2,000 g
Now,
According to the given information,
The number of grams does Kelly needed to add to the snack mix to make 2 kilograms = 2,000 – 1,425
= 575 grams
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
The number of grams does Kelly needed to add to the snack mix to make 2 kilograms is: 575 grams

Question 11.
H.O.T. Multi-Step Kelly plans to take juice on her camping trip. Which will hold more juice, 8 cans or 2 bottles? How much more? It is given that
Kelly plans to take the juice on her camping trip
Now,
The given table is: Now,
From the above,
We can observe that
The capacity of 1 can of juice is: 150 mL
The capacity of 1 bottle of juice is: 2 L
Now,
We know that,
1 L = 1,000 mL
So,
2 L = 2 × 1,000 mL
= 2,000 mL
So,
150 mL < 2,000 mL
Now,
The difference between the capacities of a can of juice and a bottle of the juice = 2,000 – 150
= 1,850 mL
Hence, from the above,
We can conclude that
1 bottle of juice will hold more juice
The bottle of juice holds 1,850 mL more than the can of the juice
