## What is the relationship between meters and kilometers?

1 kilometer contains 1000 meters. Alternatively, 1 meter is equal to 0.001 kilometers.

Meters and kilometers are units of distance or length in the metric system. We can use the abbreviation m to represent meters and the abbreviation km to represent kilometers.

In the metric system, the meter is the base unit of distance. All other units are derived from the meter using suffixes. In this case, kilo means 103, so one kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters.

## How to convert from meters to kilometers?

Since 1 kilometer contains 1,000 meters, we can get the number of kilometers by dividing the meters by 1,000. Alternatively, we can multiply the meters by 0.001. So, we can form the following formula:

#### Example 1:

Convert 2500 meters to kilometers.

We find the number of kilometers by dividing meters by 1000:

d(km) = 2500/1000

d(km) = 2.5 km

#### Example 2:

How many kilometers are equal to 15600 meters?

Dividing the distance in meters by 1000, we have:

d(km) = 15600/1000

d(km) = 15.6 km

#### Example 3:

Convert 80,500 meters to kilometers.

If we divide the meters by 1,000, we have:

d(km) = 80500/1000

d(km) = 80.5 km
