Complete: What meters is equal to
three kilometers and 352 meters.
In this question, we’re given a
measurement in mixed units, three kilometers and 352 meters. We have to write this as an amount
in meters. And we’ve been given a part–whole
model to help. We’re being asked to find the
amount in meters. The amount we’ve been given has
been partitioned or broken apart into an amount of kilometers, there are three, and
an amount of meters, 352. 352 is already written in meters,
so we just need to convert the amount in kilometers to an amount in meters.
If one kilometer is equal to 1,000
meters, how many meters are there in three kilometers? To convert from kilometers to
meters, we have to multiply our amount of kilometers by 1,000. So one kilometer multiplied by
1,000 equals 1,000 meters. So to convert three kilometers to
meters, we just need to multiply our three kilometers by 1,000. Three kilometers is equal to 3,000
Now all we need to do is add our
two parts back together again, 3,000 meters plus 352 meters. The missing number is 3,352. 3,352 meters is equal to three
kilometers and 352 meters.
