You use a simple conversion factor.

#### Explanation:

Before doing any calculations, take a look at the units you are dealing with.

In your case, you need to convert *kiloliters*, **kL**, to *liters*, **L**.

If you look at a metric conversion chart, you'll notice that *kilo* denotes a **multiple**.

More specifically, the *kilo* prefix denotes a multiplication factor of **1000**.

So, in order to get from one kiloliter to one liter, you need to multiply the starting unit by **1000 liters**.
