To convert from:

• Larger metric units to smaller metric units (kg g  mg), you multiple by 10 for each move to the right.

• Shortcut - move the decimal point 1 space to the right () for each space you count from the “FROM” unit to the “TO” unit.

To convert from:

• Smaller metric units to larger metric units (kg  g  mg), you divide by 10 for each move to the left.
