**Definitions:**

**Kilometer Square** (abbreviation: **km2**): is the SI derived unit of area. It is the area of a square whose sides measure exactly one kilometre. The square metre is derived from the SI base unit of the metre, which itself is the length of the path travelled by light in absolute vacuum within time interval of 1/299,792,458 * 1000 of a second.

**Millimeter Square** (abbreviation: **mm2**): is the SI derived unit of area. It is the area of a square whose sides measure exactly one millimeter. The square millimeter is derived from the SI base unit of the metre, which itself is the length of the path travelled by light in absolute vacuum within time interval of 1/299,792,458 * 1/1000 of a second.

## How to Convert Kilometers Square to Millimeters Square

*Example: How many millimeters square are equivalent to 37.79 kilometers square?*

As;

1 kilometers square = 1000000000000 millimeters square

37.79 kilometers square = Y millimeters square

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 37.79 times 1000000000000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 37.79 * 1000000000000 / 1 = 37790000000000 millimeters square

Answer is: 37790000000000 millimeters square are equivalent to 37.79 kilometers square.
