The average adult is about 60% water. One liter of water has a mass of 1 kilogram. If a person’s body contains 45 liters of water, what is the person’s mass in kilograms?

Write the percent as a ratio with a whole of 100. Then find an equivalent ratio with the liters as the part.

The number of liters is equal to 60% of the total mass.
