## 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 8 kilometers into meters we have to multiply 8 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

8 km → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 8 km × 1000 m

L_{(m)} = 8000 m

The final result is:

8 km → 8000 m

We conclude that **8 kilometers is equivalent to 8000 meters**:

8 kilometers = 8000 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 0.000125 × 8 kilometers**.

Another way is saying that *8 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 0.000125 meters*.

## Approximate result

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

8 km ≅ 8000 m

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