## 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 408 centimeters into kilometers we have to multiply 408 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

408 cm → L(km)

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

L(km) = 408 cm × 1.0E-5 km

L(km) = 0.00408 km

The final result is:

408 cm → 0.00408 km

We conclude that 408 centimeters is equivalent to 0.00408 kilometers:

408 centimeters = 0.00408 kilometers

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 245.09803921569 × 408 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 408 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 245.09803921569 kilometers.

## Approximate result

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

408 cm ≅ 0.004 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately two hundred forty-five point zero nine eight times four hundred eight centimeters.
