The mass of 1 cubic meter of a substance is 800 kilograms under certain conditions. What is the volume, in cubic centimeters, of 1 gram of this substance under these conditions? (1 kilogram = 1,000 grams and 1 cubic meter = 1,000,000 cubic centimeters)

800 kg = 800,000g
1 m^3 = 1,000,000 cm^3

We are looking for the volume.

can someone explain why the setup is
1,000,000 / 800,000 = 10/8 = 1.25

This is how I put it...

800,000g has a volume of 1,000,000 cm^3
1 g has a volume of X

X = (1g * 1,000,000 cm^3) / 800,000g = 1.25

1 cubic meter : 800 kg

1g= ?

1 cubic meter : 800 x 1000 g
1000000 cubic centimeters : 800000 g
divide both sides by 800000

10/8 cubic centimeters : 1 g
