# How many milligrams are in one gram?

Question #33598. Asked by Hated math. (May 13 03 4:57 PM)

Holland

Milli means a thousandth, so a milligram is a thousandth of a gram, a millimetre is a thousandth of a metre, and a millilitre is a thousandth of a litre. Kilo, on the other hand, means a thousand, as in a kilogram being a thousand grams. What baffles me is why a millenium is not a kilennium, since it is a thousand years and not a thousandth of a year!
