Dumb conversion question

I'm sorry for posting this, but I'm really confused by the following.

The problem states to use units of 1000 TOE("tons of oil equivelent, where 1 ton = 1000 kg) So if I'm given 1698 kg oil equivalent, I need to divide by 1000 twice to get to the units of 1000 TOE?

Thanks.

1 ton = 1000kg
1 ton of oil equivalent = 1000kg of oil equivalent

I understand that, but they want it in units of 1000 TOE, so I divide TOE by 1000, right?
