I am unfamiliar with the term "metric ladder." However, I suspect it is the list of the prefixes. From

kilo

hecto

deca

unit

deci

centi

milli

Note that there are a number of prefixes both above and below those listed above.

Well you listed them in order. unit is the center where it just stays...

it goes:

Kilo

hecto

deca

------unit-----

deci

centi

milli

when going up the ladder you move the decimal left. such as. 1 cm= .1 dm.

When going down the ladder move the decimal right. ex: 1 cm= 10 mm

yes it is correct.

2m=0.02cm
