00:00:01.010 --> 00:00:07.610
Write in cubic centimeters one and six tenths decimeters cubed.
00:00:09.080 --> 00:00:16.400
Before we move from decimeters to centimeters, let’s think about what decimeter cubed actually means.
00:00:17.610 --> 00:00:28.770
1.6 decimeter cubed means 1.6 decimeters times decimeters times decimeters.
00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:33.730
This is what cubed units represents.
00:00:35.190 --> 00:00:44.700
In order to convert decimeters cubed, we need to convert each of our decimeters into centimeters, like this.
00:00:46.100 --> 00:00:49.970
We remember that one decimeter equals 10 centimeters.
00:00:51.360 --> 00:00:56.430
To convert from decimeters to centimeters, we need to multiply by 10.
00:00:57.610 --> 00:01:03.370
And we’re working with cube units, which means we need to do that three times.
00:01:05.100 --> 00:01:14.520
To convert 1.6 decimeters cubed into centimeters cubed, we’ll need to multiply by 10 by 10 by 10.
00:01:15.610 --> 00:01:19.300
So we bring down our original amount of 1.6.
00:01:20.350 --> 00:01:24.120
And then we multiply it by 10 by 10 by 10.
00:01:25.630 --> 00:01:32.340
1.6 times 10 cubed equals 1600.
00:01:33.790 --> 00:01:42.460
And since we’re working with our units cubed, we would write 1600 centimeters cubed.
00:01:44.500 --> 00:01:51.710
1.6 decimeters cubed is equal to 1600 centimeters cubed.
