Each unit of length is 10 times larger than the immediately lower unit.
Note the following transformations:
Turn 16.584hm to m.
To transform hm to m (two positions on the right) we must multiply by 100 (10 x 10).
16.584 x 100 = 1,658.4
16,584hm = 1,658.4m
Turn 1.463 cm to cm.
To transform dam to cm (three positions on the right) we must multiply by 1,000 (10 x 10 x 10).
1.463 x 1000 = 1.463
1.463dam = 1.463cm.
Turn 176.9m to Dam.
To transform m to dam (one position on the left) we must divide by 10.
176,9 : 10 = 17,69
176.9m = 17.69dam
Turn 978m to km.
To transform m to km (three positions on the left) we must divide by 1,000.
978 : 1.000 = 0,978
978m = 0.978km.
Note: To solve an expression formed by terms with different units, we must first transform all of them into the same unit, and then perform the operations.
