william wants to known how many kilograms a 1000 gram cantaloupe weighs he converts the measurement and says the melon 1,000,000 kilograms what did he do wrong

math 
bobpursley,
first, kilogram is not a measure of weight, it is a measure of mass. Your teacher should know that. Weight is in Newtons.
1000grams= 1kilogram of mass.

Steve,
But the answer is, he multiplied by 1000, instead of dividing by 1000.

Nina,
What he did wrong is that William did not multiply
the 1,000gram by 1.
