Linear Measure

10 millimeters (mm) =1 centimeter (cm) 
10 centimeters =1 decimeter (dm) = 100 millimeters
10 decimeters =1 meter (m) = 1,000 millimeters
10 meters =1 dekameter (dam) 
10 dekameters =1 hectometer (hm) = 100 meters
10 hectometers =1 kilometer (km) = 1,000 meters

Area Measure

100 square millimeters (mm2) =1 sq centimeter (cm2)
10,000 square centimeters =1 sq meter (m2)
=1,000,000 sq millimeters
100 square meters =1 are (a)
100 ares =1 hectare (ha)
=10,000 sq meters
100 hectares =1 sq kilometer (km2)
=1,000,000 sq meters

Volume Measure

10 milliliters (ml) =1 centiliter (cl) 
10 centiliters =1 deciliter (dl)= 100 milliliters
10 deciliters =1 liter (l)= 1,000 milliliters
10 liters =1 dekaliter (dal) 
10 dekaliters =1 hectoliter (hl)= 100 liters
10 hectoliters =1 kiloliter (kl)= 1,000 liters

Cubic Measure

1,000 cubic millimeters (mm3) =1 cu centimeter (cm3)
1,000 cubic centimeters =1 cu decimeter (dm3)
=1,000,000 cu millimeters
1,000 cubic decimeters =1 cu meter (m3)
=1 stere
=1,000,000 cu centimeters
=1,000,000,000 cu millimeters

Weight

10 milligrams (mg) =1 centigram (cg) 
10 centigrams =1 decigram (dg)= 100 milligrams
10 decigrams =1 gram (g)= 1,000 milligrams
10 grams =1 dekagram (dag) 
10 dekagrams =1 hectogram (hg)= 100 grams
10 hectograms =1 kilogram (kg)= 1,000 grams
1,000 kilograms =1 metric ton (t)
