The value given in the second row is ____________ hectograms.

  1. 0.128    
  2. 0.314    
  3. 0.028    
  4. 0.134    

Hint:

We are given a table with columns denoting different units of weight. There are four rows, with some value in certain column. We are just asked the question related to second row. We have to write the quantity given in second row in hectograms. We don’t have to pay attention to other rows.

The correct answer is: 0.028


    The quantity given in second row is 28 decigrams.
    We are asked to convert the above quantity in hectograms.
    To convert the above quantity in hectograms, we should know the relation between them.
    1 decigram = 0.001 hectogram
    So, to convert 28 decigrams into hectogram we will multiply the value by 0.001.
    We get
    28 decigram = 28 × 0.001 hectogram
    = 0.028 hectogram
    So, the value given in second row is 0.028 hectogram.

    For such questions, we should know about the conversion of units.
