00:00:01.900 --> 00:00:05.900
How many kiloliters are there in 34,207 milliliters?
00:00:05.900 --> 00:00:14.860
In this question, we need to convert our 34,207 milliliters into a value in kiloliters.
00:00:14.930 --> 00:00:19.760
To do this, we’ll need to recall two key conversion facts.
00:00:20.120 --> 00:00:25.200
Firstly, we’ll need to know that one kiloliter is equal to 1000 liters.
00:00:25.560 --> 00:00:30.910
And then we use the fact that one liter is equal to 1000 milliliters.
00:00:31.160 --> 00:00:34.810
So we’ll take the value in milliliters and convert it into liters.
00:00:34.990 --> 00:00:38.170
And then we’ll convert that quantity into kiloliters.
00:00:38.400 --> 00:00:46.020
As we know that there’s 1000 milliliters in one liter, to convert between milliliters and liters, we divide by 1000.
00:00:46.220 --> 00:00:51.860
The same is true; when we change liters into kiloliters, we divide by 1000.
00:00:52.260 --> 00:00:58.480
So we take our value of 34,207 and we divide by 1000 to find the quantity in liters.
00:00:58.530 --> 00:01:04.540
When we divide by 1000, we’re moving our digits three places to the right.
00:01:04.540 --> 00:01:12.200
This means that if we take the three in the ten thousands column, this will now be in the tens column.
00:01:12.390 --> 00:01:14.970
The other digits follow along behind.
00:01:15.310 --> 00:01:19.310
Don’t forget that after our ones column, we need a decimal point.
00:01:19.560 --> 00:01:24.510
So our answer in liters is 34.207 liters.
00:01:24.760 --> 00:01:29.680
You may also say this value as thirty-four and two hundred and seven thousandths.
00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:31.920
Now, we have the value in liters.
00:01:31.980 --> 00:01:34.290
We can change it into kiloliters.
00:01:34.500 --> 00:01:42.160
So we take our value of 34.207 liters and divide by 1000 to find the value in kiloliters.
00:01:42.440 --> 00:01:47.740
Remember that when we’re dividing by 1000, we move our digits three places to the right.
00:01:47.940 --> 00:01:51.350
So the digit three will now be in the hundredths column.
00:01:51.500 --> 00:01:54.790
We’ll need to add a decimal point and placeholder zeros.
00:01:55.180 --> 00:02:01.430
We can then give the answer of 0.034207 kiloliters.
