## 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 4.2 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 4.2 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

4.2 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 4.2 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 4200 m

The final result is:

4.2 km → 4200 m

We conclude that 4.2 kilometers is equivalent to 4200 meters:

4.2 kilometers = 4200 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 0.00023809523809524 × 4.2 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 4.2 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00023809523809524 meters.

## Approximate result

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

4.2 km ≅ 4200 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero times four point two kilometers.
