**What does "Metric Prefix" mean?**

Hi everyone.

Could someone please tell me what "metric prefix" means? Today was my first day in IBH Physics, but the teacher didn't give us textbooks yet so I have no source of reference. I'm now doing the first homework, which is a long maths packet. I come across a problem that asks "complete the following table". They give me "Standard Notation", "Scientific Notation", and "Metric Prefix. I can convert standard notation to scientific notation with ease, but I don't know what "metric prefix" is...

Thanks a lot!
