Complete: What meters is equal to three kilometers and 352 meters.
00:00:09.450 --> 00:00:20.360
In this question, we’re given a measurement in mixed units, three kilometers and 352 meters.
00:00:20.390 --> 00:00:25.050
We have to write this as an amount in meters.
00:00:25.310 --> 00:00:31.940
And we’ve been given a part–whole model to help.
00:00:31.940 --> 00:00:38.280
We’re being asked to find the amount in meters.
00:00:38.310 --> 00:00:52.610
The amount we’ve been given has been partitioned or broken apart into an amount of kilometers, there are three, and an amount of meters, 352.
00:00:53.400 --> 00:01:07.540
352 is already written in meters, so we just need to convert the amount in kilometers to an amount in meters.
00:01:09.100 --> 00:01:18.240
If one kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters, how many meters are there in three kilometers?
00:01:19.340 --> 00:01:25.920
To convert from kilometers to meters, we have to multiply our amount of kilometers by 1,000.
00:01:26.600 --> 00:01:32.520
So one kilometer multiplied by 1,000 equals 1,000 meters.
00:01:33.700 --> 00:01:41.440
So to convert three kilometers to meters, we just need to multiply our three kilometers by 1,000.
00:01:42.890 --> 00:01:47.020
Three kilometers is equal to 3,000 meters.
00:01:48.010 --> 00:01:58.800
Now all we need to do is add our two parts back together again, 3,000 meters plus 352 meters.
00:01:59.830 --> 00:02:02.760
The missing number is 3,352.
00:02:03.090 --> 00:02:10.030
3,352 meters is equal to three kilometers and 352 meters.
