We will learn the use of decimal in measuring the distance.
As we already know that,
1000 metres = 1 kilometre or 1000 m = 1 km
So, 1 m is one thousandths of a km.
or, 1 m = \(\frac{1}{1000}\) km = 0.001 km
Similarly, 250 m = 0.250 km or 0.25 km (250 metres is twenty five thousandths of a kilometre)
617 m = 0.617 km (617 metres is sixty hundred seventeen thousandths of a kilometre)
Kilometres and metres can be expressed together as decimals.
For example,
14 km 252 m = 14.252 km
77 km 17 m = 77.017 km
93 km 103 m = 93.103 km
116 km 42 m = 116.042 km
207 km 119 m = 207.119 km
320 km 21 m = 320.021 km
