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
