###### Asked in Metric System

### Why do you use division to change a smaller unit to a larger unit in conversions?

There are lots of small units in each big unit. As a result, the
number of small units is greater and to go from a greater number to
a smaller number you need to divide by a number which is biiger
than 1.
Alternatively, to change a smaller unit to a larger unit you can
always multiply by a number which is between 0 and 1.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### Why it ms sense to multiply when you convert to a smaller unit?

It makes sense to multiply when converting measurements to
smaller units because it takes many smaller units to make up a
larger unit. So in order to translate larger unit(s) into smaller
units, you have to break up the larger unit(s) into many smaller
pieces.

### Why do you multiply to change from a larger unit to a smaller unit?

Example. (meters to millimeters)
There are more millimeters in a metre(1000 to be precise)
Therefore you multiply by 1000 to get from metres to

That is wrong we don't want an example
You have multiply because the larger unit has to broken down
into plenty of smaller measurements or units. When you do that the
number is multiplied into many smaller units.
