Solution

## The correct option is B 26 kgJim initially had 19,700 g of sand. He added 6,300 g of sand more. So, the total amount of sand = 19,700 + 6,300 = 26,000 g Now, converting gram to kilogram, we see: So, 1 gram=11000 kg ⇒ 26,000 gram=26000×11000 kg=26 kg ∴ Jim will now have 26 kg of sand in his sandbox.
