How do I convert milligrams to grams?

I am trying to learn metric!


Answer by  worker6059 (57)

In the metric system anything with the prefix milli will form part of a larger unit. To convert milligrams into grams simply multiply by 1000. This is also true for millilitres and millimetres.


Answer by  kf4vkp (295)

There are 1000 milligrams in one gram, so you would need to divide your number of milligrams by 1000. Conversely to go from grams to milligrams, you multiply by 1000

That's easy. A milligram is a thousandth of a gram. Therefore to get grams from milligrams, just divide by a thousand.


Answer by  DevoutCatalyst (441)

Miligrams Divided by 1000 = Grams. 4500 miligrams = 4. 5 grams.


Answer by  joseph510 (48)

Insert a decimal 3 places to the left: 3000 MHD = 3.000 grams. 50000 mgs = 50.000 grams. Easy.


Answer by  kate74 (273)

One gram is equal to 1000 milligrams. Therefore, five hundred milligrams would be a half gram. Simply divide the number of milligrams you have by 1000 and you'll get a decimal, which is that amount in grams.
