00:00:00.840 --> 00:00:06.000
Write in cubic centimeters one and six tenths decimeters cubed.
00:00:07.440 --> 00:00:13.680
Before we move from decimeters to centimeters, let’s think about what decimeter cubed actually means.
00:00:14.960 --> 00:00:24.120
1.6 decimeter cubed means 1.6 decimeters times decimeters times decimeters.
00:00:25.080 --> 00:00:27.200
This is what cubed units represents.
00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:36.000
In order to convert decimeters cubed, we need to convert each of our decimeters into centimeters, like this.
00:00:37.320 --> 00:00:41.640
We remember that one decimeter equals 10 centimeters.
00:00:42.960 --> 00:00:47.160
To convert from decimeters to centimeters, we need to multiply by 10.
00:00:47.880 --> 00:00:54.160
And we’re working with cube units, which means we need to do that three times.
00:00:55.400 --> 00:01:03.920
To convert 1.6 decimeters cubed into centimeters cubed, we’ll need to multiply by 10 by 10 by 10.
00:01:04.720 --> 00:01:10.640
So we bring down our original amount of 1.6.
00:01:11.840 --> 00:01:14.640
And then we multiply it by 10 by 10 by 10.
00:01:15.440 --> 00:01:20.760
1.6 times 10 cubed equals 1600.
00:01:21.840 --> 00:01:27.200
And since we’re working with our units cubed, we would write 1600 centimeters cubed.
00:01:27.920 --> 00:01:36.920
1.6 decimeters cubed is equal to 1600 centimeters cubed.
