## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from centimeters to kilometers is 1.0E-5, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 1.0E-5 kilometers:

1 cm = 1.0E-5 km

To convert 250 centimeters into kilometers we have to multiply 250 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to kilometers. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 1.0E-5 km

250 cm → L(km)

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

L(km) = 250 cm × 1.0E-5 km

L(km) = 0.0025 km

The final result is:

250 cm → 0.0025 km

We conclude that 250 centimeters is equivalent to 0.0025 kilometers:

250 centimeters = 0.0025 kilometers ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 400 × 250 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 250 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 400 kilometers.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two hundred fifty centimeters is approximately zero point zero zero three kilometers:

250 cm ≅ 0.003 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately four hundred times two hundred fifty centimeters.
