EXAMINE YOUR METRIC MEASUREMENT
LEARNING SKILLS FOR EVERYDAY USE

Choose From the Following Subjects and Sub-Categories

PREFIX SYMBOL
for EVERYDAY USE

centi  is 1 one hundredth (0.01)

milli is 1 one thousandth (0.001)

kilo is 1000 times
as much


BASE and Derived UNIT SYMBOL

meter  m

liter  L

kilogram  kg


Symbols
identify prefix and base or derived unit OR everyday unit of measure together. Simply place the prefix in front of the base or derived unit like mm (millimeter),
cm (centimeter), km (kilometer) or mg (milligram),
kg (kilogram) and mL (milliliter). 
The size or quantity is indicated by the first letter or
prefix symbol and the second letter or symbol
identifies the base or derived unit.

   We easily identify the prefix centi when we think of 100 cents in the Unit  dollar. We could even refer to it as a "centidollar" and you come pretty close to doing that anyway by calling it 1 cent. There are exactly 100 cents in a dollar just like 100 cm (centimeters) in a meter. Got it? It just gets easier.

Use prefixes in front of the base or derived unit or unit of measure OR everyday unit of measure to make the Quantity, Size or Value
smaller by
1 one hundredth (0.01)
even smaller by
1 one thousandth (0.001)
OR bigger by
1000 times as much
