In this activity, you will need to remember the standard conversion of metric measures for **mass **(weight).

**Remember, **

**1 kg = 1000 g**

**1000 kg = 1 tonne**

**For example**

**To convert from grams to kgs**

4000 g = _____ kg

There are 1000 g in a kg so I need to divide 4000 by 1000

**4000 g ÷ 1000 = 4 kg**

**To convert from kg to grams**

30 kg = _____ g

There are 1000 g in a kg so I need to multiply 30 by 1000

**30 kg x 1000 = 30,000 g**

**To convert kg to tonnes**

8000 kg = _____ tonnes

There are 1000 kg in a tonne, so I need to divide 8000 by 1000

**8000 kg ÷ 1000 = 8 t**

**To convert tonnes to kg**

6.56 t = _____ kg

There are 1000 kg in a tonne, so I need to multiply 6.56 by 1000

**6.56 t x 1000 = 6560 kg**
