### Convert 86000 cm to km Show all of your work?

This is a table that shows how to convert distances:
Kilometer (km)
Hectometer (hm)
Decameter (dam)
Meter (m)
Decimeter (dm)
Centimeter (cm)
Mellimeter (mm)
As you go down the list you multiply by 10 each step!
So 1 kilometer is 10 Hectometers. 10 Hectometers are 100
Decameters.
0.5 Hectometers are 5 Decameters or 50 Meters.
Now as you go from bottom towards the top you DIVIDE by 10 each
step.
So 100 Millimeters are 10 centimeters or 1 decimeter or 0.1
Meter.
Hence, 86000 cm are 0.86 km.
86000 divided by 100000!
