Fill in the missing value: 60.4 percent of a kilogram is blank grams.

We recall that 1000 grams is equal to one kilogram. This means that we need to calculate 60.4 percent of 1000 grams. To convert from a percentage to a decimal, we divide by 100. 60.4 divided by 100 is 0.604. This means that in order to calculate 60.4 percent of 1000 grams, we need to multiply 0.604 by 1000. Multiplying by 1000 moves all of our digits three places to the left. So, this is equal to 604. The missing value in the statement is 604 as 60.4 percent of a kilogram is 604 grams.
