### How do you convert meters to kilometers?

There are 1,000 meters in a kilometer. So, to convert meters to kilometers, we have to divide the meters by 1,000. One meter is 1/1,000th of a kilometer, so to convert meters to kilometers, we divide by 1,000. Let's do just one example. 500 meters is how many kilometers? [We have to divide 500 by 1,000 to get an answer.] 500 meters/1,000 = 0.5 kilometers [500 meters is 0.5 kilometers]
