The formulas for conversion are represented below:

cm = km x 100000

Example: 100 kilometers in centimeters:

cm = km x 100000

cm = 100 x 100000

cm = 10000000

km = cm / 100000

Example: 100 centimeters in kilometers:

km = cm / 100000

km = 100 / 100000

km = 0.001

Considering that 1 kilometer is equivalent to 100000 centimeters, you can use a rule of three to obtain that **1.5 km equals 580000 centimeters**.

1 km - 100000 cm

5,8 km - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x ~~km~~ = 580000 c~~k~~m^{2}

x = 580000 cm

If every 100000 centimeters we have 1 kilometer, just divide 100000 by the number of centimeters (8), so you will get that **8 cm equals 0.00008 km**. Observe the calculation below:

km = cm / 100000

Km = 8 / 100000

km = 0,00008
