1000 grams = 1 kg.

So, the weight of each of the 3 bags in kilograms is as below:

 Bag 1 Bag 2 Bag 3 Weight in kg and gms 24 kgs and 200 gms 7 kgs and 59 gms 2 kgs and 3 gms Converting gms to kgs 200 gms = 200 kg1000= 0.200 kg 59 gms = 50 kg1000= 0.059 kg 3 gms = 3 kg1000= 0.003 kg Weight in kg 24.200 kg 7.059 kg 2.003 kg

To find the total weight of the bags, 24.200 kg, 7.059 kg, and 2.003 kg must be added.
