## 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 48.4 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 48.4 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

48.4 km → L(m)

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

L(m) = 48.4 km × 1000 m

L(m) = 48400 m

The final result is:

48.4 km → 48400 m

We conclude that 48.4 kilometers is equivalent to 48400 meters:

48.4 kilometers = 48400 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 2.0661157024793E-5 × 48.4 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 48.4 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.0661157024793E-5 meters.

## Approximate result

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

48.4 km ≅ 48400 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero times forty-eight point four kilometers.
