How to convert Metre to Kilometre?

To convert metre to kilometre, multiply the given metres by 1/1000 to get the value in kilometres. As
1 kilometre = 1000 metre
The Formula to convert metre to kilometre is given below,
X m = X × 1/1000 km
where X is the value in metres.

Examples of the conversion of Metre to Kilometre

Problem 1: Convert 3 metres to kilometres.
Solution 1:

Step 1: The given value is 3 metres.
Step 2: To convert 3 metres to kilometres, substitute the given value at the required places in the conversion formula.
X m = X × 1/1000 km
Hence,
3 m = 3 × 1/1000 km
= 0.003 km
Therefore, 3 metres is 0.003 kilometres.


Problem 2: Convert 40 metres to kilometres.
Solution 2:

Step 1: The given value is 40 metres.
Step 2: To convert 40 metres to kilometres, substitute the given value at the required places in the conversion formula.
X m = X × 1/1000 km
Hence,
40 m = 40 × 1/1000 km
= 0.04 km
Therefore, 40 metres is 0.04 kilometres.

Problem 3: Convert 55 metres to kilometres.
Solution 3:

Step 1: The given value is 55 metres.
Step 2: To convert 55 metres to kilometres, substitute the given value at the required places in the conversion formula.
X m = X × 1/1000 km
Hence,
55 m = 55 × 1/1000 km
=   0.055 km
Therefore, 55 metres is 0.055 kilometres.

Problem 4: Convert 800 metres to kilometres.
Solution 4:

Step1: The given value is 800 metres.
Step 2: To convert 800 metres to kilometres, substitute the given value at the required places in the conversion formula.
X m = X × 1/1000 km
Hence,
800 m = 800 × 1/1000 km
= 0.8 km.
Therefore, 800 metres is 0.8 kilometres.

Problem 5: Convert 650 metres to kilometres.
Solution 5:

Step1: The given value is 650 metres.
Step 2: To convert 650 metres to kilometres, substitute the given value at the required places in the conversion formula.
X m = X × 1/1000 km
Hence,
650 = 650 × 1/1000 km
= 0.650
Therefore, 650 metres is 0.650 kilometres.
