    I need help with a Maths question please!

    Hello,
    I have a wee question.
    please can you help me with working converting and working out some prices of some goods?

    So, if an items (paprika spice) is costed at 1.22 per 100g and the weighing scales are measuring in kg. The weight is 0.010kg. I have lots of these the work out. How can I cost the paprika? And I have many others too. Is there a quick formula I can use?

    Many thanks,
    Emloga

    One kilogram is 1000 grams so 100 g is 0.1= 1/10 of a kilogram. 0.010= 1/100 kg is 10 grams so 1/10 of 100g. If 100g costs 1.22, then 0.10 kg cost 0.12 (or 0.13 if you round up).
