Firstly, we want to make both measurements in grams. This means that we need to change 4kg (kilograms) to grams. Kilo means 1000, therefore there must be 1000 grams ( kilo gram) in 1kg. If we have 4kg, this will mean that we have 4000 grams (4 x 1000 grams). We must now write the two numbers as fraction. 240 grams as a fraction of 4000 grams (4kg) is:240/4000To simply the fraction we need to think about what number goes into 240 and 4000. We know that both numbers end in 0 for example, so 10 is definitely a factor of 240 and 4000. Divide both numbers by 10:24/400Now we need to think about another number that goes into both 24 and 400, the numerator (top number = 24) and the denominator (bottom number = 400). 4 is another number that will go into both numbers:Divide 24 an 400 by 4 ==> 6/100Since both numbers are still even, we can use 2 to divide both 6 and 100 by.Divide 6 and 100 by 2 ===> 3/503/50 is the simplest fraction that we can have because 3 cannot go into 50 without a remainder. To check our answer, we can take 3/50 away from 240/4000.240/4000 – 3/50 = 0As this equals zero, we know that 3/50 = 240/4000
