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=1000 grams and 1 cubic meter
= 1,000,000 cubic centimeters)

800 * 1000 Grams = 1 CC
1 Gram = 1/(800 * 1000) = 1/(8 * 100000) = .125/100000 CC

So in cc = (0.125 * 1000000) / 100000 = 1.25

How did you know that 800,000 grams equals 1 CC? I can't seem to follow the explanation. Could you please explain further. Thanks.

800 KiloGram = 800 * 1000 Grams.

Given in question that 800 KG is equal to 1 CC.
So 800*1000 Grams is equal to 1 CC.
