Write 3.6 kilograms in grams.
So in order to answer this
question, we need to know one of our conversion factors. And that is that one kilogram is
equal to 1000 grams. So therefore, if we want to work
out what 3.6 kilograms is, well, we’d actually multiply one kilogram by 3.6 to get
to 3.6 kilograms.
So therefore, all what we have to
do is actually multiply our 1000 grams by 3.6 to actually work out how many grams
that would be. And when we do that, that will be
3600 grams. And the way we actually got 3600
grams by multiplying 1000 by 3.6 is gonna be shown over here. So actually, let’s think about the
If you got 3.6, that means we’ve
got three ones or three units and then a point and then six tenths. And then, if we multiply this by
1000, what this means is that each of the digits is actually gonna move three place
values to the left. So our three will go to 1000. And our six from our six tenths
will actually go to 100. So what we’re left with is
Okay, great! Therefore, we’ve actually answered
the question. And we can say that 3.6 kilograms
is equal to 3600 grams.
