How to Convert Kilograms to Grams

Example: How many grams are equivalent to 1.71 kilograms?


As;

1 kilograms = 1000 grams

1.71 kilograms = Y grams

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 1.71 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 1.71 * 1000 / 1 = 1710 grams

Answer is: 1710 grams are equivalent to 1.71 kilograms.
