1)conversion:3m=3000cm Answer=1500

2)conversion:5m=5000cm Answer= 3300

3)conversion:3000m=3km 1.2km=1200m Answer=2800

4)conversion:2.5km=2500 Answer=7.5km

5)conversion:2l=2000ml 547ml=5.47l Answer=1453ml

6)conversion:7:15= quarter to seven 8:30=half past eight Answer=1:15

1.conversion: 3m= 3000cm Answer = 1500cm/1.5 M

2.conversion: 5m=5000cm Answer = 4830cm

3. Conversion: 1.2 km = 1200m Answer = 3800m

4. conversion: 2.5 km = 2500m Answer = 7500m

5.conversion : 2 L = 2000ml Answer 1452

1. 3m = 300cm divided by 2 = 150

2. 5m = 500cm – 170cm = 330

3. 1.2km = 1200m 3000m – 1200m = 1800

4. 2.5km = 2500m 5000m – 2500m = 2500

5. 2 litres = 2000ml – 547ml = 1453

1)300cm=150cm in meters =1500

2)500cm-170cm=330cm

3)3000-1200=1800m

4)5000km-2500km=3500m

5)2000liters-547ml=1547ml

From Maleeha and Safa

1.3 meters = 300m divided by 2 = 150cm

2.5 meters =500cm -170cm = 330cm

3.1.2km = 1200m 3000- 1200 = 1800

4.2.5km = 2500m 5000 – 2500 = 2500

5.2 litres = 2000m – 547m = 1453

1. 300 meters half of 300m=150

2.500meters -170cm= 330

3.3000-1200=1800cm

4.5000-2500=2500

5.2000- 547=2547

1) 300cm=150cm in metres=1500m

2)500cm-170cm=330cm

3)3000-1200=1800km

4)5000-2500=3500m and in km 700km

1) The answers is 150 cm. I know this because as the carpenter has cut the plank of wood in to two pieces we need to work out what the convention of 3 meters, which is 300 cm. Then half the 300 cm then our answer is 150.

2) The answer is 330 cm. I worked this out by converting the 5 metres which is

500 cm .Then I took 170 away from 500 which left me with 330.

3)The answer is 1800metres. I know this because I converted 1.2 km so it was 1200. After I found the difference which was 1800.

4) The answer is 2500. I found the answer by converting 2.5 km into metres .Next I found the difference and discovered that nidhi cycled 2500 metres .

5)The answer is 1453 letres because I found the difference between the two numbers.

Alisha and Priya.😀😌👍🏻😜

1.300meters = 3meters she halves 300 which is 150m

2.500m = 5m then a joiner cuts 170 of 500m – 170=330cm

3.3000-1200=1800

4.5000m-2500km= 2500

1. 1.5m 150cm

2.5m 500cm-170cm=480cm

To be continued

1)The answer is 150cm.I know this because the carpenter has a plank of 3 metres long.

2)The answer is 320 because the man cuts it off.

3)The answer is 1600

4)The answer is 1600

5)The answer is 1460.

1.3000m=3 kilometre

150 centimetres and in metres 1500 metres.

2.5 metres =500 centimetres

500cm takeaway 170cm=330cm

3.3000m=300cm

3000m minus 1200m=1800m

4.2.5km=2500m

2500m +5000m=7500m

1) 150m – 1500cm

2) 420cm

3) 4200.

4) 7500

5) 347ml

1.3 M=3000cm half of 3000 cm is 1500cm and half of 3M is 1.5 Kg

2.5 m=5000cm 5000cm -170cm=4830cm

1.The length of both pieces of wood is 1m and a half. (150cm)

2.5000cm – 170cm = 4830cm.

3.1.2km + 1.8km = 3km.

4.2500m + 5000m = 7500m. (7.5km)

5.2000ml – 547 = 1456.

6.It took 1 hour and 15 minutes to get washed, changed and have breakfast.
