## How to Convert Kilograms to Short Tons

### Example: How many Short tons are equivalent to 71.64 kilograms?

As;

1 kilograms = 0.001102 Short tons

71.64 kilograms = Y Short tons

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

Y equals 71.64 times 0.001102 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.64 * 0.001102 / 1 = 0.07894728 Short tons

Answer is: 0.07894728 Short tons are equivalent to 71.64 kilograms.
