## 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 260 centimeters into kilometers we have to multiply 260 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

260 cm → L(km)

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

L(km) = 260 cm × 1.0E-5 km

L(km) = 0.0026 km

The final result is:

260 cm → 0.0026 km

We conclude that 260 centimeters is equivalent to 0.0026 kilometers:

260 centimeters = 0.0026 kilometers

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 384.61538461538 × 260 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 260 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 384.61538461538 kilometers.

## Approximate result

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

260 cm ≅ 0.003 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately three hundred eighty-four point six one five times two hundred sixty centimeters.
