K = thousand

the q was behind salary which will obviously be in rands (that is R for some of you)

so how ever many K in rands equals so many 1000s

put M behind it and it means metres
put G behind it and it means grams

and so on.

hope this does not turn into a fisticuff!

Not my question, the original posting. The dude refered specifically to salary. Anyhow, not trying to pick a fight, just think u must have a bit of brain fog going on.

Have a Nice Day...

Lola = Yes I know hon, the emphasis was on the word Kilo .... not gram :-)

SR hon, KG is kilogram(not just k), and with reference to money its def thousand. So just add three zero's onto the end. They wouldn't phrase it as R120 000K though, they would say 120K. (120 000)

Need help = apologies, 1000, not 10 thousand. so 1 kilo gram = 1000 grams. I was taking amounts by the previous post

Reply to SR
Posted by: SR | 2005/07/06

Need help = Also stands for kilo which means 10 thousand like as in metric measurement. i.e. 1 kilo gram = 10 thousand grams

thousand. eg 10k per month = 10 thousand.
