83,700g

1kg=1000g. When converting Kg to g you need to move the decimal place 3 spaces to the right. So 83.7kg = 83700g

Alternate - since 1 kg = 1000 grams, let's just multiply 83.7 by 1000. Some students are ok with moving the decimal point, others not so much. If a student moves the decimal point without the requisite number sense, problems arise down the road.

1 kilograms = 1000 grams

83.7 kilograms = 83.7*1000= 83700 grams. Just move the decimal point three steps ahead and add the zeros in the blank space.

83.7 kg

1 kg = 1000 g

1 : 1000

83.7 x 1000

= 83,700

**So therefore, 83.7kg = 83,700g**

83.700 grams

83.7 kg

1kg=1000g

83.7 x 1000 = 83,700g

We need to figure out how many grams 83.7 kg equals to.

You must have memorized your metric prefixes. The kilo prefix means 1000 also written as `10^3` .

You can literally just replace the prefix with this number. So in scientific notation 83.7 kg equals `83.7 xx 10^3` g.

You could also just do the multiplication and get 83700 grams.
