# Multiplication of Metric Measures

We will discuss here about the multiplication of metric measures. Metric measures are multiplied in the same way as we multiply ordinary numbers. We place the digits in columns and then multiply as usual.

Let us consider some examples.

1. Multiply the following:

(i) 3 kg 6 hg 4 dag 9 g by 7

We place the digits in columns and then multiply as usual.

25 kg 5 hg 4 dag 3 g

(ii) 1 kl 9 hl 2 l by 15

We place the digits in columns and then multiply as usual.

28 kl 5 hl 3 dal

(iii) 320.36 kg by 14

We place the digits in columns and then multiply as usual.

4485.04 kg

(iv) 618.24 l by 24

We place the digits in columns and then multiply as usual.

14837.76 l

Word problems on multiplication of metric measures:

2. 9 bags of sugar are kept in a store room. Each bag weighs 98 kg 550 g. What is the total weight of all the bags?

Weight of one bag = 98 kg 550 g

Weight of 9 bags = 98 kg 550 g × 9

Total weight of 9 bags = 886 kg 950 g
