False Correct Statement: 1 kilogram = 1000 grams or 1 gram = 0.001 kilograms

Work Step by Step

The statement, "1 gram= 1000 kilograms," is false. It should make sense that 1 gram is far less than one thousand kilograms. While 1000 kilograms is the weight of a car, 1 gram is a small unit of measure. The corrected statement is below: 1 kilogram = 1000 grams, or 1 gram = 0.001 kilograms.
