The Metric System

Factor lable

There is one easy way to convert customary measurements to metric units and the other way around. It is called the factor labeling method. The first step of the factor labeling mehtod is to set up your problem. So to go from liters to milliliters, set up your problem like I do, try and do it.
1 Liter 1,000 ml
---------- x --------------

1 1 L

The liters cancel each other out, so you have 1 times 1,000 ml. That would leave you with 1,000 milliliters per liter, which is a correct conversion.
