    Answer:

    The mass of the potting soil left in the bag is 4,825 grams or 4.825 kilograms

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Information given to us to answer the question correctly:

    Mass of the bag of potting soil = 5 kilograms

    Mass of potting soil to pot a plant = 175 grams

    Let’s recall that 1 kilogram = 1,000 grams, therefore:

    5 kilograms = 5,000 grams

    Mass of the potting soil left in the bag = Mass of the bag of potting soil – Mass of potting soil to pot a plant

    Replacing with the values we have:

    Mass of the potting soil left in the bag = 5,000 – 175

    Mass of the potting soil left in the bag = 4,825 grams

    4,825 grams = 4.825 kilograms
