1 kilogram = 0.001 **metric tons**.

So take the number of kilograms and multiply by 0.001 (or divide

by 1000) to get the number of metric tons.

**Another answer:**

1 kilogram = 0.00110231131 **short tons**.

So take the number of kilograms and multiply by 0.00110231131 to

get the number of metric tons.
