### How many centimeters in 78 kilometers?

Prefix 'centi' is used to denote sub multiples of meter and uses
factor 0.01.
Prefix 'kilo' is used to denote multiples of meter and uses
factor 1000.
Therefore to convert kilometers to centimeters, first kilometers
are converted to meters and then meters to centimeters.
1. To convert kilometers to meters, value in kilometers has to
be multiplied by factor used with prefix 'kilo':
78 kilometers = [kilometers] * 1000 = 78 * 1000 = 78000
meters
2. To convert meters to centimeters, value in meters has to be
divided by factor used with prefix 'centi':
78000 meters = [meters] / 0.01 = 78000 / 0.01 = 7800000
centimeters
78 kilometers = 7800000 centimeters

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Units of Measure, Length and Distance

### Which is greater 2 kilometers or 300 centimeters?

2 kilometers. To see why just convert to the same units: Lets go
for centimeters: Kilo means 1000, and a metre is 100 centimeters,
so 2 kilometers becomes 2x1000x100 centimeters which is bigger than
300 centimeters. If you go for meters instead, 2 kilometers is 2000
meters, and 300 centimeters is 3 meters and 2000 is bigger than
3

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### How does one change a measurement in centimeters to kilometers?

A centimeter is one one-hundredth of a meter, whereas a
kilometer is one-thousand meters. That means there are 100,000
centimeters in a kilometer. So, if you have a measurement in
centimeters, just divide that number by 100,000 and it will give
you an answer in kilometers. For example, 25 centimeters is (25
divided by 100,000) .00025 kilometers.
