K H D B D C M K=Kilo(meters) H=Hecto(meters) D=Deci(meters) B=Basic Unit(Meters in this case) D=Decka(meters) C=Centi(meters) M=Milli(meters) I remember this order by saying "King Henry Died By Drinking Chocolate Milk." So know lets convert. If you wanted to convert meters into millimeters(B to M) then you would see it is 3 letters to the right.(K H D B D C M)So all you do is take your Measurement in meters(lets say 23.447m) all you would do is move the decimal 3 places to the right. (So now it would be 23.447) But if you wanted to convert meters to kilometers, then you know K is three places to the left of B. So all you do is move your decimal 3 places to the right.(0.023447 Would be meters converted into kilometers.
