Best Answer

If you are going to divide litres by a large amount (like 1,000) it would be helpful to first convert the figure into millilitres. There are 1,000 millilitres in a litre, and thus you can convert from litres to millilitres by multiplying by 1,000. In this case we have 3 litres, so would do 3x1000 = 3,000 millilitres. Divide this figure as stated in the question and you get 3 millilitres. Therefore 3 litres divided by 1,000 is 3 millilitres.
