Answer:

Divide by #1000#.

Explanation:

This is a case of the metric system. To convert from "milli-" to the standard unit, such as meters or liters, we divide by #1000#.

One milliliter is equal to a thousandth of a liter, and one liter is equal to one thousand milliliters.

In numbers, that is:

#1 \ "mL"=0.001 \ "L"=10^-3 \ "L"#

#1 \ "L"=1000 \ "mL"=10^3 \ "mL"#
