    You know there are 2.3x10^24 atoms. Dividing this by Avogadro's number (6.022x10^23 atoms/mole) gives you the number of moles of silver that you have. You can multiply that number by 108 grams/mole to get the number of grams of silver, then divide that by 1000 to convert to grams into kilograms.
