How to convert between different metric lengths?
Here are some common units of length in the metric system and their conversions:
1 meter (m) = 100 centimeter (cm)
1 kilometer (km) = 1000 meters (m)

To convert from a larger unit to a smaller unit, we multiply. For example, to convert 10 kilometer to meters, multiply by 1,000: 10 kilometer = 10 × 1,000 meters = 10,000 meters.
To convert from a smaller unit to a larger unit, we divide. For example, to convert 1,000 centimeters to meters, divide by 100: 1,000 centimeters = 1,000 ÷ 100 meters = 10 meters.

Find the equivalent measures.

1 km = m

4 km = m

7 km = m

km = 18,000 m

km = 17,000 m

1 m = cm

3 m = cm

80 m = cm

m = 12,000 cm

m = 2,400 cm

3 km 312 m = m

13 km 27 m = m

7 km 123 m = m

22 km 22 m = m

915 km 8 m = m

3 m 56 cm = cm

7 m 45 cm = cm

67 m 7 cm = cm

14 m 8 cm = cm

120 m 46 cm = cm
