A Centimetre is a unit of length. It is defined as one-hundredth of a meter. In the International System of Units (SI), the current form of the metric system. The centimeter, like the meter, is used in a variety of applications across the world (in nations that have adopted metrication) when a smaller denomination of the meter is necessary. Centimeters are widely used to measure height.

1 centimetre =  1/100000 kilometer. 

1 cm =  0.00001 km 

In the International System of Units, a kilometer (symbol: km) is a unit of length (SI). In most of the world, it is now the standard unit of measurement for describing distances between geographical locations on land.

1 km = 100000 cm 

Convert centimeter to kilometer 

Solution: 

Centimeters (cm) and kilometres (km) are both units of measurement for length and distance.

As we all know, 1 centimetre = 1/100000 kilometer. 

1 cm =  0.00001 km 

Thus, multiplied the number of cm by 0.00001 to convert cm to km. To put it another way, divide the number of centimetres by 100000 to obtain the value in kilometres.

Sample Questions 

Question 1: Convert 200 cm into km?

Solution: 

Given, 200 cm

As we know 1 cm =  0.00001 km

Multiplying this by 0.00001,

= 200 × 0.00001

= 0.002 km

Therefore, 200 cm = 0.002 km.

Question 2: Convert 15 cm to km?

Solution:  

Given:  15 cm 

As we know 1 cm =  0.00001 km

Multiplying this by 0.00001 

= 15 × 0.00001 

= 0.00015 km

Question 3: Convert 100 km into cm?

Solution: 

Given : 100 km 

As we know,

1 centimetre =  1/100000 kilometer. 

Or 1 km = 100000 cm

Now to find centimeter 

100 km = 100 × 100000 cm

= 10000000 cm

Question 4: Convert 1250 km into cm?

Solution: 

Given: 1250 km

As we know,

1 centimetre =  1/100000 kilometer.

Or 1 km = 100000 cm

Now to find centimeter

100 km = 1250 × 100000 cm

= 125000000 cm

Question 5: Convert 150 cm to km?

Solution:  

Given: 150 cm

As we know 1 cm =  0.00001 km

Multiplying this by 0.00001

= 150 × 0.00001

 150 cm =  0.0015 km

Question 6: Convert 1860 cm into km?

Solution: 

Given, 1860 cm

As we know 1 cm =  0.00001 km

Multiplying this by 0.00001,

= 1860 × 0.00001

= 0.0186 km

Therefore, 1860 cm = 0.0186 km
