The highlighter with the mass of $11 \cdot g$ has the greater mass.

Explanation:

$1 \cdot g = 1 \times {10}^{3} \cdot m g = 1 \times {10}^{-} 3 \cdot k g$

And thus $11 \cdot g = 11 \cdot \cancel{g} \times {10}^{3} \cdot m g \cdot \cancel{{g}^{-} 1} = 11 , 000 \cdot m g$

How many $\text{kilograms}$ is this mass?
