How to Convert Kilograms to Long Tons

Example: How many Long tons are equivalent to 17.25 kilograms?


1 kilograms = 0.000984207 Long tons

17.25 kilograms = Y Long tons

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

Y equals 17.25 times 0.000984207 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 17.25 * 0.000984207 / 1 = 0.01697757075 Long tons

Answer is: 0.01697757075 Long tons are equivalent to 17.25 kilograms.
