## How to Convert Kilograms to Long Tons

*Example: How many Long tons are equivalent to 74.3 kilograms?*

As;

1 kilograms = 0.000984207 Long tons

74.3 kilograms = Y Long tons

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 74.3 times 0.000984207 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 74.3 * 0.000984207 / 1 = 0.0731265801 Long tons

Answer is: 0.0731265801 Long tons are equivalent to 74.3 kilograms.
