**drwls**, Sunday, March 2, 2008 at 8:51amSince 10^27 metric tons and 10^30 kilograms are the same, the conversion factor must be

10^30 kg/10^27 m.t = 10^3 kg per metric ton

10^3 is what you multiply the no. of metric tons by to get kg.

Put another way:

10^27 metric tons = 10^30 kg

Divide both sides of the equation by 10^27

Therefore

1 metric ton = 10^3 kg = 1000 kg

If 120 donuts is 10 dozen, there must be 12 in a dozen. The logic is the same.
