metric system conversions

1)3.68kg = ? g

(3.68 kg) (10^-3 / 1kg) = 3.68 x 10^-2 g

2) 568cm = ? m

(568cm) (1 m /100cm) = 5.68 m

Are these correct?

  1. 1)

    1 kg = 1000 g

    3.68 kg = 3.68 * 1000 = 3680 g

    2)

    1 m = 100 cm

    1 cm = 1 / 100 = 0.01 m

    568 cm = 568 / 100 = 5.68 * 0.01 = 5.68 m

    You can check this.
