## How to Convert Grams to Long Tons

*Example: How many Long tons are equivalent to 7.47 grams?*

As;

1 grams = 9.84207E-7 Long tons

7.47 grams = Y Long tons

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 7.47 times 9.84207E-7 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 7.47 * 9.84207E-7 / 1 = 7.35202629E-6 Long tons

Answer is: 7.35202629E-6 Long tons are equivalent to 7.47 grams.
