There are one million (1,000,000, 1 x 106) square meters in a square kilometer.
There are 1000 meters in 1 kilometer. Thus to get the
number of square meters in 1 square kilometer, you must square the
number of meters in a kilometer. 1,000 meters X 1,000 meters =
1,000,000 square meters.
Is it one million, e.g. 1000 x 1000?
