Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

 gram = g

milligram =mg

kilogram =kg

1g = 1000mg,       but 1mg=1g/1000

1kg=1000g,          but 1g=1kg/1000

1kg=1000000mg,  but 1mg=1kg/1000000

To get milligram from grams you multiply grams by 1000

For example

If you have12 grams=12g

You want milligrams

multiply grams by 1000: 12 x 1000mg=12000mg, since g=1000mg

You have 12kilograms and you want convert to mg , multiply kilogram by 1000000

12kg=12x1000000mg=12000000mg, since kg=1000000mg


But if you have 12 mg

You want g, then divide by 1000

12mg=12mg*1g/1000mg=0.12g


Also if you have 12g and you want kg you do the following

12g=12g*1kg/1000g=0.12kg

Does this help? if not please let me know, i can elaborate more.
