## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers to millimeters is 1000000, which means that 1 kilometer is equal to 1000000 millimeters:

1 km = 1000000 mm

To convert 48 kilometers into millimeters we have to multiply 48 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from kilometers to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km → 1000000 mm

48 km → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 48 km × 1000000 mm

L(mm) = 48000000 mm

The final result is:

48 km → 48000000 mm

We conclude that 48 kilometers is equivalent to 48000000 millimeters:

48 kilometers = 48000000 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 2.0833333333333E-8 × 48 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 48 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 2.0833333333333E-8 millimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that forty-eight kilometers is approximately forty-eight million millimeters:

48 km ≅ 48000000 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero times forty-eight kilometers.
