\(48 manuals * \frac{400 grams}{1 manual} * \frac{1 kg}{1,000 grams}\)

Approach and Working:
    • The weight of 48 manuals = 48 * 400 grams = 19200 grams = 19.2 kilograms

Hence, the correct answer is option C.

Pretty straightforward, I think:

48*400 = 19200 grams

19200 * (1/1000) --> (19200/1000) --> (192/10) --> 19.2

Answer is C
