### The Metric System

By: Dominic Yrigoyen, and Carina Corral

King Henry Died By Drinking Chocolate Milk
• Kilo = 1000 1/1000
• Hecto = 100 1/100
• Deca = 10 1/10
• Base = 0
• Deci = 0.1
• Centi = 0.01
• Milli = 0.001
How do we use the metric
• If we didn’t have the metric system then we wouldn’t be able to measure stuff.
• Scientists use the metric system to measure things that they do. Because if they didn't labs would go wrong.
• Nothing would be right we wouldn’t know how much to use of things.
Why we need the metric system
• We need the metric system for almost everything.
• If there was no metric system then we wouldn’t be able to bake and cook.
• We use measuring for everything.
Grams
• 1 Milligram = .001g
• 1 Centigram = 0.01g
• 1 Decigram =.1g
• Mass Grams
• 1 Decagram = 10g
• 1 Hectogram = 100g
• 1 Kilogram = 1000g
Meter
• 1 Millimeter = 0.001m
• 1 Centimeter = 0.01
• 1 Decimeter = 0.1
• Length meter 1
• 1 Dekameter = 10m
• 1 Hectometer = 100m
• 1 Kilometer = 1000m
Liter
• 1 Milliliter = 0.001L
• 1 Centiliter = 0.01L
• 1 Deciliter = 0.1L
• Volume liter
• 1 Dekaliter = 10
• 1 Hectoliter = 100
• 1 Kiloliter = 1000
