‘MEASUREMENTS’ Measurement of Capacity: Addition with Conversion Adding a capacity in Liters or Milliliters is same as adding any other measurement! We always add the capacities with the same unit together, and then convert to any other unit if we want. For Example: Add 20 L and 15 L and give your answer in ‘mL’. Solution: we can add the Ls first and then convert in milliLitres in the end or we can convert to mL individually first and then add to get the desired result. 20 L + 15 L = (20+15) L = 35 L =(35X1000) mL Since 1L = 1000mL = 35,000 mL Similarly, when compound units are involved we group the same units together, add them and then do conversion, if required. For Example: Add 2L 20mL & 3L 32mL and give your answer in ‘mL’. Solution: 2L 20mL = (2x1000) + 20 mL = 2020 mL Since 1L = 1000mL 3L 32mL = (3x1000) + 32 mL = 3032 mL 2L 20mL + 3L 32mL = (2020 + 3032) mL = 5052 mL “Please log in to www.letsshareknowledge.com for more worksheets" “Please log in to www.letsshareknowledge.com for more worksheets"
