How many grams are in a kilogram?
There are 1000 grams in a kilogram. When converting between grams and kilograms, you would divide the number of grams you have by 1000. If converting from kilograms to grams, you would multiply by 1000.
For example, we have 5270 grams of flour, but we’d like to express it in kilograms. So we would work out 5270 ÷ 1000 = 5.27, which tells us that we have 5.27 kilograms.
By contrast, if I had 7.3 kilograms of cardboard and wanted to express it in grams, I would multiply it by 1000. So we would work out 7.3 × 1000 to reach 7300 grams.
