Conversion of Measuring Length
In conversion of measuring length we will learn how to
convert meters into centimeters, kilometers into meters, centimeters into meters and meters into kilometers.
We know that standard unit of length is meter. Smaller
lengths are measure in centimeters which is written as cm. Kilometer is the
bigger unit of length.
1 meter = 100 centimeters
1 kilometers = 1000 meters
So, to convert meter into centimeters we multiply by 100 and
centimeters into meters we divide by 100. To convert kilometer into meters we
multiply by 1000 and meters into kilometers we divide by 1000.
To convert meters into centimeters, multiply the number of meters by 100.
(i) 1 m = 100 cm
(ii) 2 m = 2 × 100 cm = 200 cm
(iii) 3 m = 3 × 100 cm = 300 cm
(iv) 5 m = 5 × 100 cm = 500 cm
To convert kilometers into meters, multiply the number of kilometers by 1000.
(i) 1 km = 1000 m
(ii) 2 km = 2 × 1000 m = 2000 m
(iii) 3 km = 3 × 1000 m = 3000 m
7 km = 7 × 1000 m = 7000 m
To convert centimeters into meters, divide the number of centimeters by 100 or put a fot (.) after 2 digits from right.
(i) 100 cm = 1.00 m or 1 m
(ii) 200 cm = 2.00 m or 2 m
(iv) 800 cm = 8.00 m or 8 m
(v) 1100 cm = 11.00 m or 11 m

100 cm = 100 ÷ 100 = 1 m
200 cm = 200 ÷ 100 = 2 m
800 cm = 800 ÷ 100 = 8 m
1100 cm = 1100 ÷ 100 = 11 m

To convert meters into kilometers, divide the number of meters by 1000 or put a dot (.) after 3 digits from right.
(i) 1000 m = 1000 ÷ 100 = 1 km or 1.000 km
(ii) 2000 m = 2000 ÷ 100 = 2 km or 2.000 km
(iii) 3000 m = 3000 ÷ 100 = 3 km or 3.000 km
(iv) 9000 m = 9000 ÷ 100 = 9 km or 9.000 km

We will discuss here about measuring the line segment i.e. how to draw and measure a line segment using scale or ruler. We can measure a line segment by two ways. (i) With the help of scale
We will learn measure a length using a ruler. The ruler given below has 15 cm marked on it. The length of the ruler is 15 cm. To measure a length of a pencil, place at the ‘0’ of the ruler at the one end of the pencil and note the position of the other end.
We will discuss here about the addition of hours, minutes and seconds. Let us consider some of the examples on adding time.
We know that hour, minute and second are the units, we use to measure the time. Now we will practice the questions given in the worksheet on conversion of time.
We normally use 12hour clock system. The hour hand of the clock goes round the dial twice a day (24 hours). Some departments like railways, Airlines, etc use 24hour clock system because they do
Units of time conversion chart are discussed here in hour, minute, second, day, week, month, and year. We know that there are 12 months in a year. The months of January, March, May, July, August, October and December have 31 days. The months of April, June, September and
We will discuss here about the conversion of minutes into hours. We know 60 minutes is equal to 1 hour, which is required to convert the measuring time from minutes to hours.
We will discuss here about the conversion of seconds into minutes. We know 1 second is equal to 1/60 minute, which is required to convert the measuring time from seconds to minutes.
We will discuss here about the conversion of hours into minutes. We know 1 hour is equal to 60 minutes which is required to convert the measuring time from hours to minutes.
There are different units of time. Second, minute, hour, day, week, month and year are the units of time. These have the following relations between each: 60 seconds = 1 minute
Calendar helps us to see the dates and along with that the week day of that same dates. Calculating the number of days between two given dates. Riana stayed at her grandmother's house from
We will discuss here about the conversion of minutes into seconds. We know 1 minute is equal to 60 seconds, which is required to convert the measuring time from minutes to seconds.
We will discuss here about the metric measures of length, mass and capacity. As we know, the standard units of length, weight and capacity are metre (m), gram (g) and litre (l)
To convert a smaller unit into a bigger unit, we move the decimal point to the left. In other words, we can say that we divide. This is very important for us to learn how to convert smaller
To convert a bigger unit a smaller unit, we move the decimal point of the right. In other words, we can say that we multiply. This is very important for us to learn how to convert bigger
