So if 1 kg is 1000 grams, how many kilograms can we take out of 2,850 grams, and what will we have left over?

How many whole kilograms?

OpenStudy (whpalmer4):

2 whole kilograms, right? That leaves 0.85 kilograms, or 850 grams. We need to figure out which combination of units will handle 850 grams.

This is where knowing the prefixes pays off. centi = 1/100 (1 cm = 1/100 m) hecto = 100 milli = 1/1000 (1 mm = 1/1000 m) deka = 10 deci = 1/10 what units will we need to make up 850 grams?
