Transcript Grams and Kilograms (Word Problems) — Let's Practise!
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 twentyfive grams each. What is the total weight of all of 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 TWENTYFIVE, which is ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTYFIVE. Add the unit of measurement. Did you also get one hundred and twentyfive grams? Let's tackle the next word problem! There is a total of twentyfour kilograms of sand. If all of 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 TWENTYFOUR 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 and fifty grams, and a mango weighs one hundred and seventyseven grams. What is the total weight of the fruit? 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 AND FIFTY plus ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTYSEVEN, which is FOUR HUNDRED AND TWENTYSEVEN. Add the unit of measurement. Did you also get four hundred and twentyseven grams? Razzi had so much fun practicing with you today! See you next time!

What is the total mass?
HintsWhat 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.
Solution75 g + 220 g = 295 g

Pip's luggage.
HintsWhen 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.
SolutionThe 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?
HintsSince 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?
SolutionEach duck weighs 600 g
 1,800 ÷ 3 = 600 g

Cookie recipe.
HintsThe 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.
SolutionA 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

Baking cakes.
HintsWe are finding 7 lots of 10 g, so we need to multiply 7 by 10.
What is 7 times 10? We can try counting up in our tens to help.
SolutionThere 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?
HintsRemember that there are 1,000 g in 1 kg, so 2 kg is the same as 2,000 g.
As we are sharing a total amount between a smaller number, we need to complete a division calculation.
Count how many kittens there are altogether.
SolutionWhen 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.
