How to Convert Kilometers to Meters

Example: How many meters are equivalent to 4.62 kilometers?


As;

1 kilometers = 1000 meters

4.62 kilometers = Y meters

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

Y equals 4.62 times 1000 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 4.62 * 1000 / 1 = 4620 meters

Answer is: 4620 meters are equivalent to 4.62 kilometers.
