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
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.
But the answer is, he multiplied by 1000, instead of dividing by 1000.
What he did wrong is that William did not multiply
the 1,000-gram by 1.
I don't know
He multiplied instead of dividing.
