# Division of Units of Mass

We can divide units of mass, kg and g by a number like ordinary numbers. When measurements are given as combination of two units, we first convert the bigger units to lower units and then divide.

Solved Examples on Division of Units of Mass:

1. Divide 14 kg 164 g by 4.

Let us first convert 14 kg 164 g into grams.

14 kg 164 g = 14000 g + 164 g

= 14164 g

Divide 14164 by 4

Hence, 14164 ÷ 4 = 3541 g

= 3 kg 541 g
