If one kilogram is equal to 1000
grams, then 95000 grams is equal to how many kilograms?
Notice, over here, the kilograms
are on the left, but over here, the kilograms are on the right. So we just have to be careful. Let’s put these on top of each
other so we can better compare them. And the benefit of writing them
like this is we can create a proportion.
We can fill an 𝑥 here and then
create a proportion where we cross-multiply. And since we know 𝑥 will be in
kilograms, we can go ahead and leave them out. So we’ll take 1000 times 𝑥 and
take one times 95000. And now to solve for 𝑥, we must
divide both sides of the equation by 1000. The 1000s cancel on the left, and
95000 divided by 1000 is 95. Therefore, our final answer will be
