Transcript Grams and Kilograms (Word Problems) — Let's Practice!
Razzi says get these items ready, because today we're going to practice grams and kilograms - word problems. It's time to begin! Solve this word problem. Josiah has five bouncy balls. The balls weigh twenty-five grams each. What is the total weight of all the balls? Pause the video to work on the problem and press play when you are ready to see the solution! To solve, we need to calculate five multiplied by twenty-five, which is one hundred twenty-five. Add the unit of measurement. Did you also get one hundred twenty-five grams? Let's tackle the next word problem! There is a total of twenty-four kilograms of sand. If all the sand is shared equally into eight bags, how many kilograms of sand are in each bag? Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! To solve, we need to calculate twenty-four divided by eight, which is three. Add the unit of measurement. Did you also get three kilograms? Let's tackle the final word problem! A pineapple weighs two hundred fifty grams, and a mango weighs one hundred seventy-seven grams. What is the total weight of the fruits? Pause the video to work on the problem, and press play when you are ready to see the solution! To solve, we need to calculate two hundred fifty plus one hundred-seventy seven, which is four hundred twenty-seven. Add the unit of measurement. Did you also get four hundred twenty-seven grams? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!

What is the total mass?Hints
What is the unit that is being used in the question? Be sure that this is also the unit in the answer.
The question says in total, this means that the two amounts must be added.Solution
75 g + 220 g = 295 g
When Pip is finding the total of more than one item, that means the items need to be added together,
If Pip is removing an amount, then you need to complete a subtraction equation.Solution
The shorts and the book = 1,035 g or 1.035 kg
- the shorts weigh (430 g) and the book weighs (605 g)
- 430 + 605 = 1,035
- 1,035 g is equivalent to 1.035 kg
- the shorts weigh (430 g), the book weighs (605 g) and the hat weighs (215 g)
- 430 + 605 + 215 = 1,250 g.
The weight when the book is removed is 645 g.
- 1,250 - 605 = 645 g.
What do they weigh?Hints
Since there are three ducks and we want to find the weight of one, we must divide the total amount by the number of ducks.
What is 1,800 ÷ 3?Solution
Each duck weighs 600 g
- 1,800 ÷ 3 = 600 g
The original recipe makes 30 cookies, 60 cookies is double this, so you will need to double the ingredients.
10 cookies is one third of 30. This means that you need to find one third of the ingredients, or divide by 3.Solution
A recipe to bake 30 cookies requires 160 g sugar and 210 g flour. The total mass of the dry ingredients is 370 g.
- 160 + 210 = 370 g
- 370 x 2 = 740 g
- 210 ÷ 3 = 70 g
We are finding 7 groups of 10, so we need to multiply 7 by 10.
What is 7 times 10? We can skip count by 10 7 times to solve.Solution
There are 7 cupcakes and each cupcake has 10 g of sugar.
- 7 x 10 = 70 g
- We would also get 70 g if we calculated 10 x 7.
What do the kittens weigh?Hints
Remember that there are 1,000 g in 1 kg, so 2 kg is the same as 2,000 g.
We are sharing a total amount between a smaller number, so we need to divide.
Count how many kittens there are altogether.Solution
When these kittens were born, they weighed 2.8 kg in total. That means that each kitten weighed 400 g. We know this because we can convert 2.8 kg into 2,800 g, then divide this by the number of kittens, which is 7.
