Rules for Using the Number Line

1. Find the pre-fix of the unit that is

given in the problem. Locate this on

the number line. This is the first

letter in the unit.

T G M k h da d c m μ n p

3 3 3 1 1 1 1 1 1 3 3 3

Example: 567.3 km = _____ cm

2. Find the pre-fix that of the conversion

you want to find on the number line.

T G M k h da d c m μ n p

3 3 3 1 1 1 1 1 1 3 3 3

Example: 567.3 km = _____ cm

3. Count the spaces using the numbers

between the two pre-fixes.

T G M k h da d c m μ n p

3 3 3 1 1 1 1 1 1 3 3 3

Example: 567.3 km = _____ cm

Number of Spaces = ____

4. Move the decimal point in the same

direction as you are going on the

number line.

Example: 567.3 km = _____ cm
