# Metres into Kilometres and Metres

We will discuss here how to convert metres into kilometres and metres. Dive the number of metres by by 1000, the quotient represents kilometres and remainder represents metres.

Let us consider some of the examples on converting m to km and m:

 (i) 1235 m = 1235 ÷ 1000 gives 1 as quotient and 235 as remainder. = 1 km 235 m
 (ii) 7870 m = 7870 ÷ 1000 gives 7 as quotient and 870 as remainder. = 7 km 870 m
 (iii) 9574 m = 9574 ÷ 1000 gives 9 as quotient and 574 as remainder. = 9 km 574 m
 (iv) 50256 m = 50256 ÷ 1000 gives 50 as quotient and 256 as remainder. = 50 km 256 m
 (v) 6096 m = 9096 ÷ 1000 gives 9 as quotient and 96 as remainder. = 9 km 96 m
 (vi) 90045 m = 90045 ÷ 1000 gives 90 as quotient and 45 as remainder. = 90 km 45 m
 (vii) 34204 m = 34204 ÷ 1000 gives 34 as quotient and 204 as remainder. = 34 km 204 m

Note: We can directly put a dot (.) after 3 digits from right. The number formed to the right of dot represents metres and that to the left represent kilometres.

Let us consider some of the examples:

(i) 6425 m = 6.425 i.e., 6 km 425 m

(ii) 5004 m = 5.004 i.e., 5 km 4 m

(iii) 9085 m = 9.085 i.e., 9 km 85 m

(iv) 4820 m = 4.820 i.e., 4 km 820 m

(v) 7006 m = 7.006 i.e., 7 km 6 m

(vi) 4020 m = 4.020 i.e., 4 km 20 m

(vii) 34060 m = 34.060 i.e., 34 km 60 m

(viii) 70802 m 70.802 i.e., 70 km 802 m
