We need to divide the mass in grams by 1000 to convert to kilograms. We do this because grams are much smaller than kilograms and it takes less kilograms to represent a certain mass than it does grams (with that same mass). When we divide by 1000, we can just move the decimal from the end of 432 three places to the right and get 0.432 Kg.

So, 432 grams = 0.432 kg
