Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another
Forum rules
Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

See metric prefixes here:

h (hecto) equals to 100
d (deci) equals to 0.1

Assuming that both capital and lowercase L stand for the same unit, we get

hL = 100*L
dL = 0.1*L

Now how to change 100 something to 0.1 something? Just divide by 1000.

P.S. "L" abbreviation usually stands for litre, but it does not matter, since metric prefixes always have the same meaning regardless of the unit.
