# Subtraction of Weights

Let us learn how to subtract different units of mass. Here, kg and g are arranged in different columns and then subtracted like ordinary numbers.

1. Subtract 138 kg 165 g from 362 kg 241 g.

 Solution:Let us subtract.Step I: Arrange the numbers vertically.Step II: Write the weights to be subtracted in kg and g as shown here.Step III: First, subtract grams from right and then subtract kilograms.

Thus, 362 kg 241 g – 138 kg 165 g = 224 kg 76 g

Word Problems on Subtraction of Weights

1. A box contains 4 bags of sugar. The total weight of all 4 bags is 6 kg 380 grams. What is the weight of the box in grams?

Solution:

Weight of the box = 6 kg 380 g

6 kg 380 g = 6 × 1000 g + 380 g

= 6000 g + 380 g

= 6380 g

So, weight of the box in grams is 6380 g.

2. Sophia bought 26 kg 380 g of wheat. She used 5 kg 433 g to make wheat flour. How much wheat is left with her?

Solution:

Weight of wheat = 26 kg 380 g

Wheat she used to make flour = 5 kg 433 g

Wheat left with her = 26 kg 380 g – 5 kg 433 g

= 20 kg 947 g
