    Note that 1\text{ kg}=1000\text{ g} and 1\text{ m}=100\text{ cm}

    Do you think you can do this now?

    Use google.

    Type:

    3.75 kg to g


    then type:

    708 cm to m


    In general, you'll want to look up what the prefix means in SI units.

    kg = kilograms = 10^3 grams

    -> 3.75kg = 3.75kg*((10^3 g)/(1 kg))= 3750 g


    Google calculator is great for unit conversions.

    wow...to convert kg to g, just multiply by thousand and to convert cm to m, divide by hundred..

    1g=10^{-3}kg and 1m=100cm
