How to Convert Meters to Kilometers

Example: How many kilometers are equivalent to 98.78 meters?


As;

1 meters = 0.001 kilometers

98.78 meters = Y kilometers

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

Y equals 98.78 times 0.001 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 98.78 * 0.001 / 1 = 0.09878 kilometers

Answer is: 0.09878 kilometers are equivalent to 98.78 meters.
