system to U.S. Customary System (values are approximate).

a. 1362 g

1 milligram = 0.000035 ounces = 0.015 grains

b. 3.2 kg (3.178)

1 gram = 0.035 ounces = 15 grains

c. 85.2 g

1 hectogram = 100 grams = 3.5 ounces = 0.22 pounds

d. 6.8 t (6.8025)

1 kilogram = 2.2 pounds

1 metric ton = 2205 pounds = 1.1 short tons

Convert the following metric measurements to U.S. Customary Standard

units of weight.

a. 2.5 metric tons = ____________ tons (short)

centimeter (1 cm by 1 cm), the square meter (1 meter by 1 meter), the

are (10 meters by 10 meters), the hectare (100 meters by 100 meters),

a. 2.75 tons

and the square kilometer (1000 meters by 1000 meters).

b. 22.75 ounces

1 square meter = 10,000 square centimeters = 1 centare (0.01 are)

c. 8.8 pounds

1 are = 100 square meters

d. 35.2 ounces

1 hectare = 100 are = 10,000 square meters

(2.2 x 16)

1 square kilometer = 100 hectare = 10,000 are = 1,000,000 sq. meters

An area of 12 square kilometers contains

hectares
