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.

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

83.7 kg equals to how many grams? Good Question!

This question could be answered easily, but I'll get in depth a little. We are using the metric system which is counted by 10s. The metric system consists of         Kilo Hecto Deki Unit Deci Centi Milli. To use the metric system you would of course need a unit. A unit can be meter, gram, seconds, any SI unit. SI unit means International System of Units. First of all you need your unit, which you gave us grams. Since Kg basically means Kilogram, and gram is unit. Start on unit and move to the left 3 times. Since Kilo is on the left of Gram 3 times, but since you swant to convert kilograms to grams you do the opposite!

K H D U D C M

To do the opposite you start on Kilogram and start moving it towards the left until you end up on grams [unit]. Landing on the unit you could how many you've just moved. Now you would move the decimal point on the number given to us towards how many time you've numbed to get to unit. 87.3 to 873 [1st decimal moved] to 8730 [second decimal moved] to 87,300 [last decimal moved. Answer]

The answer would be 87,300 grams.

I have been taught a very good way to memorize the Metric System, and this may help you in the future. Since it's made up of Kilo Hecto Deki Unit Deci Centi and Milli. You could think of K H D U D C M. My science teacher taught me. King Henry Died Unexpectedly Drinking Chocolate Milk. You take the first letter of the phrase and you'll get K H D U D C M. Now it's easy since you can just think of what is on the list and name it. I got confused with where the deki and deci go every single time but soon I just got use to it.

I hope this answers your question. Also I hope you find my trick very useful!

We know that 1kg=1000g. 

To get kg to grams, we have to multiply by 1000. 

83.7 x 1000 = 83700 g

83.7 kg equals to how many grams?

When you convert from kg to g, all you have to know is that 1000 g equals 1 kg. Sp all you have to really do is multiply 83.7 kg by 1000 to get the number if grams. That would make your answer be 83,700 g.

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.

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.
