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.


How can you check if a number is a factor of the number?
