Problem 1: \(3600\) seconds are in \(1\) hour, so we can do \(\frac{4508}{3600} ≈ 1.25\) hours.

Problem 2: \(258\) nanometers is equal to \(2.579999999e-9\) hectometers, which is about \(2.58e-9\) hectometers.

Problem 3: In order to convert micrograms to miligrams, we have to move to decimal point \(3\) times to the left. This gives us \(0.0081\) miligrams.

Problem 4: Remember: K H D B D C M(Kilo, Hecto, Deca, Basic, Deci, Centi, and Mili). This tells us that in order to convert kiloliters to centiliters, we need to move the decimal point \(5\) times to the right. This gives us \(640000\) centiliters.

Problem 5: To convert kilograms to grams, we have to move the decimal point \(3\) times to the right. This will give us \(83000\) grams.
