Let's take a closer look at the conversion formulas so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.

The formula to convert from m to km is:

km = m ÷ 1,000

The formula to convert from km to m is:

m = km x 1,000

Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting from meters to kilometers (m to km) or converting from kilometers to meters (km to m).

Task: Convert 350 meters to kilometers (show work)Formula:m ÷ 1,000 = kmCalculations:350 m ÷ 1,000 = 0.35 kmResult:350 m is equal to 0.35 km

Task: Convert 4.5 kilometers to meters (show work)Formula:km x 1,000 = mCalculations:4.5 km x 1,000 = 4,500 mResult:4.5 km is equal to 4,500 m
