How to Convert Metric Tonnes to Grams

Example: How many grams are equivalent to 27.46 metric tonnes?


1 metric tonnes = 1000000 grams

27.46 metric tonnes = Y grams

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

Y equals 27.46 times 1000000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 27.46 * 1000000 / 1 = 27460000 grams

Answer is: 27460000 grams are equivalent to 27.46 metric tonnes.
