Why not look at the specification? P5-11

There is also a checklist here

Sorry I appear to have done a lot more than needed. It will be in the specification, but from memory where units are concerned it will tell you in the question. It is nothing to worry about. Just use metric unless it says otherwise.

Then they will give you the formula to calculate.
Have you looked at the specification?
Have you looked at the links I gave you?
Have you done any past exam papers?

Its just going to be estimating and rounding.
Standard metric that you should already know.
Do some past papers and that should reassure you.

Would you mind asking in the maths forum I cant take this any further.
I think its a non issue and that you already know the metric system plus where there is a conversion they always used to give you the conversion rate. There are edexcel papers you should do those.
