## 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 38.9 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 38.9 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

38.9 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 38.9 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 38900 m

The final result is:

38.9 km → 38900 m

We conclude that 38.9 kilometers is equivalent to 38900 meters:

38.9 kilometers = 38900 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 2.5706940874036E-5 × 38.9 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 38.9 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.5706940874036E-5 meters.

## Approximate result

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

38.9 km ≅ 38900 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero times thirty-eight point nine kilometers.
