## How to Convert Long Tons to Kilograms

*Example: How many kilograms are equivalent to 63.8 Long tons?*

As;

1 Long tons = 1016.0469088 kilograms

63.8 Long tons = Y kilograms

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

Y equals 63.8 times 1016.0469088 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 63.8 * 1016.0469088 / 1 = 64823.79278144 kilograms

Answer is: 64823.79278144 kilograms are equivalent to 63.8 Long tons.
