## 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 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 4 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 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 4 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 4000 m

The final result is:

4 km → 4000 m

We conclude that 4 kilometers is equivalent to 4000 meters:

4 kilometers = 4000 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 0.00025 × 4 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 4 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00025 meters.

## Approximate result

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

4 km ≅ 4000 m

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