How to Convert Millimeters to Kilometers

Example: How many kilometers are equivalent to 23.64 millimeters?


As;


1 millimeters = 1.0E-6 kilometers


23.64 millimeters = Y kilometers


Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;


Y equals 23.64 times 1.0E-6 over 1


(i.e.) Y = 23.64 * 1.0E-6 / 1 = 2.364E-5 kilometers


Answer is: 2.364E-5 kilometers are equivalent to 23.64 millimeters.
