In the transformation of units of capacity, in the decimal metric system, we must remember that **each unit of capacity is 10 times larger than the unit immediately below**.

Note the following transformation:

transform 3.19 l to ml.

kl | hl | dal | l | dl | cl | ml |

To transform l to ml (**three positions** à **right**) we must multiply by 1,000 (10x10x10).

3.19 x 1,000 = 3,190 ml

**Practice it! Try to solve these exercises:**

1) Turn 7.15 kl into dl (R: 71.500 dl)

2) Turn 6.5 hl into l (R: 650 l)

3) Turn 90.6 ml into l (R: 0.0906 l)

4) Express in liters the value of the expression: 0,6m^{3} + 10 dal + 1 hr (R: 800 l)
