  For example, a kilometer is 10 times a hectometer, and a hectometer is 10 times a decameter, which is 10 times a meter... 
  For example, if we want to convert a kilometer to a hectometer, we multiply the number by 10 however if we want to convert a kilometer to a millimeters, multiply the number by 1, 000,000. 
  Say for example we are going down the list of measurement units, and we are converting from a millimeter to a meter, we divide the number by 1,000.
