Write in meters: five and a half kilometers.

In this question, we have to convert five and a half kilometers into meters. If one kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters, then five kilometers is equal to 5,000 meters. Now all we need to do is work out what half a kilometer is equal to in meters. What is half of 1,000? 5,000 plus 500 is 5,500 meters. Five and a half kilometers is equal to 5,500 meters.
