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

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.

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 know that 1kg=1000g. 

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

83.7 x 1000 = 83700 g
