If one kilogram is equal to 1000 grams, then 95000 grams is equal to how many kilograms?
00:00:09.010 --> 00:00:14.070
Notice, over here, the kilograms are on the left, but over here, the kilograms are on the right.
00:00:14.070 --> 00:00:15.270
So we just have to be careful.
00:00:15.770 --> 00:00:20.820
Let’s put these on top of each other so we can better compare them.
00:00:21.490 --> 00:00:25.260
And the benefit of writing them like this is we can create a proportion.
00:00:26.000 --> 00:00:30.290
We can fill an 𝑥 here and then create a proportion where we cross-multiply.
00:00:31.270 --> 00:00:34.530
And since we know 𝑥 will be in kilograms, we can go ahead and leave them out.
00:00:35.760 --> 00:00:40.530
So we’ll take 1000 times 𝑥 and take one times 95000.
00:00:41.350 --> 00:00:45.130
And now to solve for 𝑥, we must divide both sides of the equation by 1000.
00:00:45.700 --> 00:00:51.360
The 1000s cancel on the left, and 95000 divided by 1000 is 95.
00:00:52.320 --> 00:00:55.210
Therefore, our final answer will be 95 kilograms.
