## How to Convert Ounces to Kilograms

*Example: How many kilograms are equivalent to 3.84 Ounces?*

As;

1 Ounces = 0.02835 kilograms

3.84 Ounces = Y kilograms

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

Y equals 3.84 times 0.02835 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 3.84 * 0.02835 / 1 = 0.108864 kilograms

Answer is: 0.108864 kilograms are equivalent to 3.84 Ounces.
