## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from meters to kilometers is 0.001, which means that 1 meter is equal to 0.001 kilometers:

1 m = 0.001 km

To convert 188 meters into kilometers we have to multiply 188 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from meters to kilometers. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 m → 0.001 km

188 m → L(km)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in kilometers:

L(km) = 188 m × 0.001 km

L(km) = 0.188 km

The final result is:

188 m → 0.188 km

We conclude that 188 meters is equivalent to 0.188 kilometers:

188 meters = 0.188 kilometers

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 5.3191489361702 × 188 meters.

Another way is saying that 188 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 5.3191489361702 kilometers.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred eighty-eight meters is approximately zero point one eight eight kilometers:

188 m ≅ 0.188 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately five point three one nine times one hundred eighty-eight meters.
