Complete: 6,521 meters is equal to
what kilometers and what meters?
In this question, we’re given a
measurement in meters, and we have to write it as an equivalent amount of kilometers
and meters. Let’s use a part–whole model to
help. The whole amount is 6,521
meters. And we have to write this as an
amount in kilometers and meters. We know that one kilometer is equal
to 1,000 meters. So if we partition 6,521 into 6,000
and 521, this will help us convert our 6,000 meters into kilometers. To convert an amount of meters to
kilometers, we have to divide by 1,000. 6,000 divided by 1,000 equals
We converted our 6,000 meters into
six kilometers. So the missing numbers are six and
521. 6,521 meters is equal to six
kilometers and 521 meters. We’ve completed the equation. 6,521 meters is equal to six
kilometers and 521 meters.
