We can multiply the units of mass kg and g by a number like ordinary numbers.
1. Multiply 115 kg by 6.
Hence, 115 kg × 6 = 690 kg
2. Multiply 32 kg 126 g by 7.
Multiply the grams by 7.
126 × 7 = 882 g. Write 882 under g column.
Multiply the kilograms
32 × 7 = 224 kg
Write 224 under kg column.
Hence, 32 kg 126 g × 7 = 224 kg 882 g.
When measurements are given as combination of two units, we can also first convert the bigger units to lower units and then multiply.
Alternative method:
First convert 32 kg 162 g into gram and then multiply by 7.
32 kg 126 g = 32000 g + 126 g
= 32126 g
32126 × 7 = 224882 g
Convert 224882 g into kg
224882 g = 224000 + 882 g
= 224 kg + 882 g
= 224 kg 882 g
Hence 32 kg 126 g × 7 = 224 kg 882 g
3. Multiply 19 kg 763 g by 5.
Solution:
First convert 19 kg 763 g into gram and then multiply by 5.
19 kg 763 g = 19000 g + 763 g
= 19763 g
19763 × 5 = 98815 g
Convert 98815 g into kg
98815 g = 98000 + 815 g
= 98 kg + 815 g
= 98 kg 815 g
Hence, 19 kg 763 g × 5 = 98 kg 815 g
