Remember that there are 1000 metres in a kilometre.

So, given a distance in km, we multiply by 1000 to convert this to m.

**Examples**

6.2 km = 6.2 x 1000 = 6200 m

6.25 km = 6.25 x 1000 = 6250 m

6.025 km = 6.025 x 1000 = 6025 m

In this worksheet, students convert distances given in kilometres into metres.
