My daughter needs to use PROPORTION to solve metric conversions. Can you please help? The question are for the
following conversions:

g=kg ___g = 5.114 kg

km=m 0.5 km = ___m

These are the other conversions that
we need to make:

ml=L
g=mg
cm=m
kg=g

km=m 0.5 km = ___m

mm=m
cm=mm

Just not sure of the formula to use
with 'a proportion'

Thank you so much!!

1) since 1 kg = 1000 g
then:
1000 g / 1 kg = x / 5.114 kg
x = (5.114 kg * 1000 g) / 1 kg
x = 5114 g

2) since 1 km = 1000 m
then:
1000 m / 1 km = x / 0.5 km
x = (0.5 km * 1000 m) / 1 km
x = 500 m

*** just do the same method for the remaining ones.. here's the rest:
1000 mL = 1 L
1 g = 1000 mg
100 cm = 1 m
1 kg = 1000 g
1000 mm = 1 m
1 cm = 10 mm
