Write 3.6 kilograms in grams.
00:00:07.320 --> 00:00:10.520
So in order to answer this question, we need to know one of our conversion factors.
00:00:11.040 --> 00:00:14.440
And that is that one kilogram is equal to 1000 grams.
00:00:15.920 --> 00:00:25.480
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.
00:00:26.120 --> 00:00:33.040
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.
00:00:34.680 --> 00:00:37.480
And when we do that, that will be 3600 grams.
00:00:39.040 --> 00:00:45.240
And the way we actually got 3600 grams by multiplying 1000 by 3.6 is gonna be shown over here.
00:00:45.560 --> 00:00:47.280
So actually, let’s think about the 3.6.
00:00:47.280 --> 00:00:54.240
If you got 3.6, that means we’ve got three ones or three units and then a point and then six tenths.
00:00:54.880 --> 00:01:03.240
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.
00:01:03.440 --> 00:01:05.520
So our three will go to 1000.
00:01:06.080 --> 00:01:09.960
And our six from our six tenths will actually go to 100.
00:01:10.200 --> 00:01:12.400
So what we’re left with is 3600.
00:01:12.720 --> 00:01:13.560
Okay, great!
00:01:15.040 --> 00:01:16.600
Therefore, we’ve actually answered the question.
00:01:16.840 --> 00:01:22.360
And we can say that 3.6 kilograms is equal to 3600 grams.
