Multiplication.

To convert from a larger unit to a smaller unit you would multiply. Ex: 5 km = 5000 m Where 1 km = 1000 m <><><><><> It depends on which factor you are multiplying or dividing by. It can go either way. To convert from ounces to grams, for instance, you can divide by 28.350, or you can multiply by 0.035273.

Because the number of larger units will be less than the number of smaller units, and when you divide the answer is usually smaller than the number you started with.

You move it to the left. As the unit gets larger, the base number gets smaller. One gram would be .001 kilograms. A kilogram is much larger than a gram, so the base number would be smaller to make up for being represented by a larger unit.

Decagram if going from larger unit to smaller unit, and decigram if from smaller to larger.

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.
