A trip across North America is approximately

(1 km)

is the prefix meaning 1 000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters
(1000 m) is the length of
1 kilometer and it is simply
written 1 km

A jog around the park can be measured in kilometers

A car traveling
at
90 km/h
is moving at
90 kilometers
per hour
THAT'S EASY!

ROAD
SIGN DRIVING TIP:
For example,
when you see a sign
that is shown as 90 km/h
(90 kilometers per hour)
and you
want a quick conversion
to mph (miles per hour)
simply multiply 0.6 x 90
in your head and you
are going approximately
54 miles per hour.
And that's close enough for
everyday purposes.

1 kilometer
per hour (km/h) is equal to .6214 miles per hour



Remember, kilo
is the prefix meaning
1000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters (1000 m) being the length of 1 kilometer,
is simply written 1 km which is pronounced
"KILLohmeetur" NOT "killAHmitur"

Remember,
centi

Smaller
Measurement from a
centimeter

_{1 millimeter
(1 mm)}

Remember, milli
is the prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So 1 one thousandth of the base unit meter, being 1 millimeter
is
simply written 1 mm
