Someone help me with metric conversions please?

I'm completely confused. I know all the stuff about converting, say meters and kilometers, centimeters, etc. But what do I do about problems like "56.78 nm = ______ micrometers" ?

And I have all the SI factors, like how nano things factor to be 10^-9 or how kilo things are 10^3 and all that.

But I'm so lost, like kL to GL, Tg to g, and a million more units. Help?

I would suggest going through the base unit. i.e. nm ==> m ==> um

Example: 56.78 nm = _____ um

56.78 nm x (1 m / 10^9 nm) x (10^6 um / 1 m) = 0.05678 um
