# Use of Decimal in Measuring the Capacity

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
