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 six.

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.
