Decimals used for measurement

We need to measure distance, mass (weight) and volume every day. We use suitable units for these measurements. Kilometre, metre and centimeter for distance; litre, millilitre for volume and kilogram and gram for mass are the units that are used most of the time. All these units are decimal units. In this method, gram, metre and litre are taken as the basic units for mass, distance and volume respectively. Units larger than these increase 10 times at every step and smaller units become $$\frac{1}{10}$$ of the previous unit at each step.

Look at the table of these units given below. The origin of the terms kilo, hecto… milli is in the Greek or Latin language. Their English equivalents are given in brackets along with the terms.
