One thousand one hundred twenty-eight and seven-tenths metres equals how many kilometres?
00:00:10.310 --> 00:00:14.260
First, let’s think, how many metres are in a kilometer?
00:00:16.470 --> 00:00:22.530
The answer is one thousand; there’re one thousand metres for every kilometer.
00:00:24.430 --> 00:00:38.180
If it takes one thousand metres to equal one kilometer and we have one thousand one hundred twenty-eight and seven-tenths metres, how we figure out exactly how many kilometres we have.
00:00:39.850 --> 00:00:42.910
The answer is to divide by one thousand.
00:00:45.010 --> 00:00:50.920
To divide by one thousand, I’ll move my decimal point three places to the left.
00:00:53.290 --> 00:01:02.990
One thousand one hundred twenty-eight and seven-tenths divided by one thousand equals one point one two eight seven.
00:01:05.070 --> 00:01:16.670
One thousand one hundred twenty-eight and seven-tenths metres is a little bit larger than one kilometer; it’s one point one two eight seven kilometres.
