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.
