DID YOU KNOW?
that you can divide 1 meter
by exactly 10 equal parts
(10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm)...

then make a cube (1000 cmณ)
of it to fill with water
and you will find that it
contains exactly 1 L (1 liter)
(1000 mL
) of water
and is the mass of exactly
1 kg (1 kilogram) (1000 g).
ALL SIMPLY RELATED IN 10!

LEARNING SKILLS
FOR EVERYDAY USE IN AMERICA

Choose From the Following Subjects

## 1 kilometer (1 km)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning 1 000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters
(1000 m) is the length of
1 kilometer and it is simply
written 1 km

#### Longer distances like lakes and rivers are measured in kilometers

#### Going to work or holiday distance is measured in kilometers

A car traveling at
90 km/h
is moving at 90 kilometers
per hour

For example,
when you see a sign
that is shown as 90 km/h
(90 kilometers per hour)
and you want a quick conversion
to mph (miles per hour)
simply multiply 0.6 x 90
are going approximately
54 miles per hour.

And that's close enough for
everyday purposes.

1 kilometer per hour (km/h) is equal to .6214 miles per hour

 Smaller from a  kilometer

### Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning 1000 times as much. So, one thousand meters (1000 m) being the length of 1 kilometer, is simply written 1 km which is pronounced "KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur"

Smaller Measurement from a meter

### Remember, centi is the prefix meaning 1 one hundredth of the base unit meter. So, 1 one hundredth of a meter (0.01 m) is simply written 1 cm

Smaller Measurement from a centimeter

### Remember, milli is the prefix meaning 1 one thousandth (0.001). So 1 one thousandth of the base unit meter, being 1 millimeter is simply written 1 mm
