## How to Convert Kilograms to Metric Tonnes

*Example: How many metric tonnes are equivalent to 41.24 kilograms?*

As;

1 kilograms = 0.001 metric tonnes

41.24 kilograms = Y metric tonnes

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

Y equals 41.24 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 41.24 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.04124 metric tonnes

Answer is: 0.04124 metric tonnes are equivalent to 41.24 kilograms.
