    You have posted multiple questions and received help. Your root problem you already know by acknowledging that you have trouble with the metric system. Providing more answers for you will not help you understand it. Here is the basic metric system.
    unit (grams, liter, second, meter, etc)

    To convert from one unit to another, just move the decimal point to the left or to the right. Move to the left if going UP the table and move the decimal to the right if going DOWN the table. For example, convert 22.0 mm to cm. Start with your pencil on mm, we go up the table so move the decimal one place to the left to change mm to cm. The answer is 2.2 cm.
    Change 22 kg to grams. Place your pencil on kg, we go down to table to get to grams so move the decimal to the right 1 place to change to hg, 2 places to change to dkg, and a third place to change to grams; therefore, 22 kg = 22000 grams. I hope this helps get you started on the right path. Memorize the prefixes or practice so much that you don't need to memorize them. Here is a web site that lists all of the prefixes as approved by the IUPAC.
