## How to Convert Metric Tonnes to Ounces

*Example: How many Ounces are equivalent to 12.7 metric tonnes?*

As;

1 metric tonnes = 35273.37 Ounces

12.7 metric tonnes = Y Ounces

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 12.7 times 35273.37 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 12.7 * 35273.37 / 1 = 447971.799 Ounces

Answer is: 447971.799 Ounces are equivalent to 12.7 metric tonnes.
