We will learn the use of decimal in measuring the capacity.
As we know that,
1000 millilitres = 1 litre or 1000 ml = 1 l
So, 1 ml is one thousandths of a l.
or, 1 ml = \(\frac{1}{1000}\) l = 0.001 l
Similarly, 18 ml = 0.018 l (18 millilitres is eighteen thousandths of a litre)
245 ml = 0.245 l (245 millilitres is two hundred forty five thousandths of a litre)
Litres and millilitres can be expressed together as decimals.
For example,
25 l 350 ml = 25.350 l or 25.35 l
54 l 251 ml = 54.251 l
1 l 115 ml = 1.115 l
79 l 13 ml = 79.013 l
223 l 47 ml = 223.047 l
43 l 9 ml = 43.009 l
