 Practice Conversion Problems: Multiple Conversion FactorsExample #1: Converting from 2,400 kilograms to tons. STEP 1: Write out the measurement to be converted (16 kg), and then the first conversion factor. The unit "kg" will be in the denominator and "lb" will be in the numerator. BUT THAT IS GOING TO CALCULATE POUNDS. WE NEED TO CALCULATE OUNCES!? Yes, you're right. But we can add a second conversion factor to convert "pounds" into "ounces." >STEP 2: Cancel out identical units (Hint: Cross out " kg" AND "lb"). STEP 3: Now multiply, and divide: THAT WASN'T HARD... NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!
