Since 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.
