Convert the masses of both fruits to the same unit.85,000 milligrams is the same as Choose… grams.0.15 kilograms is the same as Choose… grams. The Choose… has the greater mass.


  1. Step-by-step explanation:
    it is important to understand the meaning of the syllables in the terms :
    kilo means 1000
    milli means 1/1000
    so, 1 kg means 1000 g (grams).
    1 mg means 1/1000 g.
    85,000 mg = 85 g = 0.085 kg
    0.15 kg = 150 g = 150,000 mg
    so, it is clear that the peach has the greater mass.
