We learn how to multiply and divide units of measure.

We perform multiplications and divisions of measures as with decimal numbers.

**Multiplication of units of length:**

We can multiply lengths by a number, like multiplying ordinary numbers.

**1. Multiply 12 km 56 m by 7.**

**Solution: **

12 km 56 m = 12.056 m

Hence 12.056 × 7 = 84.392 km

**2. Multiply 44 perineum 28 cm by 12**

**Solution:**

28 cm = 0.28 m

1 dam = 10 m

28 cm = 0.028 dam

Hence 44 dam 28 cm × 12 = 528,336

**3. Multiply 7 km 346 m by 6**

**Solution:**

**We first convert km and m to m and then multiply.**

7 km 346 m² = 7000 m + 346 m = 7346 m Now let’s multiply by 6 = 7346 × 6 = 44076 m |

To convert 44076 m to km, we separate the last 3 digits from the right and write there as m.

44076 m = 44 km 76 m²

So 7 km 346 m times 6 = 44 km 76 m

**Multiplication of mass units:**

**4. Multiply 15g 16mg by 25**

**Solution:**

16 mg = ( frac {16} {1000} ) g

15 g 16 mg = 15.016 g

Hence 15g 16mg x 25 = 375.4g

**Multiplication of the capacity units:**

We can multiply the units of measure of capacity l and ml by a number like ordinary numbers.

**5. Multiply 9 dℓ 72 mℓ by 6**

**Solution:**

72 mℓ = ( frac {72} {100} ) dℓ = 0.72 dℓ

9 dℓ 72 mℓ = 9.72 dℓ

Hence 9.72 dℓ × 6 = 58.32 dℓ

**2. Multiply 72 ℓ 250 mℓ by 6**

First convert 72 l 250 ml to ml. 72 l 250 ml = 72 × 1000 ml + 250 ml = 72000 ml + 250 ml = 72250 ml 72250 × 6 = 433500 ml = 433 l 500 ml |

So 72 l 250 ml × 6 = 433 l 500 ml

**Division of the length units:**

We can divide lengths by a number, like dividing ordinary numbers. If the measurement is given as a combination of two units such as km and m or m and cm, we first convert the higher unit to a lower one and then divide.

**1. Divide 2 km 560 m unit by 8.**

**Solution:**

Let’s convert 2 km 560 m to m. 2 km 560 m² = 2000 m + 560 m = 2560 m Now divide 2560 by 8 |

**So 2 km 560 m ÷ 8 = 320 m**

**Division of the capacity units:**

We can divide the capacity units l and ml by a number, like normal numbers.

**1. Divide 132 ℓ 64 dℓ by 8**

**Solution:**

64 dℓ = 6.4 ℓ

132 ℓ 64 dℓ = 138.4 ℓ

So 138.4 ℓ ÷ 8 = 17.3 ℓ

**2. Divide 60 l 750 ml by 5**

When measurements are given as a combination of two units, we first convert the larger unit to a lower unit and then divide. 60 l 750 ml = 60 l + 750 ml = 60000 ml + 750 ml = 60750 ml Now divide 60750 by 5 60750 ÷ 5 = 12150 ml = 12000 ml + 150 ml = 12 l 150 ml |

So 60 l 750 ml 5 = 12 l 150 ml
