The electronic balance displays the mass of an apple in kiograms(0.1). What is the mass of the apple? Suppose a recipe for applesauce called for one kilogram of apples. About how many would you need.
If the balance says it has a mass of 0.1 kg then that is the mass. You might want to express it in grams as 100 g but 0.1 kg is a perfectly good number. If you want 1 kg of apples, then
1 kg x (1 apple/0.1kg) = # apples
Okay, don't bet on this, but I think maybe ten apples? Since the apple weighs 0.1 KG there are ten one-tenths, which equals a full kilogram. But I am not completely sure.
