Since the metric system is based on tens, converting within the system often simply means moving a decimal point. One meter equals not only 10 decimeters but 100 centimeters and 1000 millimeters as well. The decimal point just moves to the right one time for the next smaller unit of measurement or to the left one time for each larger unit. One meter cubed also equals 10,000 cubic centimeters and 100,000 cubic millimeters.
