# How do you convert 12.23 milliliters to liters?

Sep 20, 2016

$12.23 \cdot m L$ $=$ $12.23 \times {10}^{-} 3 L$

#### Explanation:

The prefix $\text{milli}$ $\equiv$ ${10}^{-} 3$.

Thus $1 \cdot m L = {10}^{-} 3 L$, equivalently there are ${10}^{3} \cdot m L \cdot {L}^{-} 1$

The prefix $\text{centi}$ $\equiv$ ${10}^{-} 2$.

The prefix $\text{deci}$ $\equiv$ ${10}^{-} 1$.
