## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers to meters is 1000, which means that 1 kilometer is equal to 1000 meters:

1 km = 1000 m

To convert 256.8 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 256.8 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from kilometers to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km → 1000 m

256.8 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 256.8 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 256800 m

The final result is:

256.8 km → 256800 m

We conclude that 256.8 kilometers is equivalent to 256800 meters:

256.8 kilometers = 256800 meters
