Answer:

Multiply by 10

Explanation:

The prefix "hecto" (#h#) means 100, and "deca" (#da#) means 10 of something/anything.

#1hg=100g=10xx10g=10dg#

Note:
The prefixes #da# and #h# are not in use very much.
Prefixes with a difference of #xx1000# are most common, an exception being the #c# in #cm=1//100m#

#m- = 1//1000# = milli
#k- =1000# = kilo
#M- = 1000000# = mega
Etc.

So with a #k$# you can throw a medium-sized party, a #M$# will make you a millionaire.
