## Measuring Long Distances

To measure long distances, such as the distance between two cities, we use a bigger unit called Kilometre.It is written in short as km

1 Kilometre (km) = 100 metres (m)

Example

You walk 1 km in about 15 minutes.

A car can travel about 50 km in one hour.

The distance between Paris and Belgium is about 504 km

# Metres and Centimetres

Example1: The length of my garden is 5m. How many centimetres is that?

1 m = 100 cm

5 m = 5 x 100 cm = 500 cm

Note: To Convert m into cm simply put 2 zeroes on the right

Example2: The height of the building in which i live is 10 m 250 cm. how many centimetres is that ?

1 m = 100 cm

10 m = 10 x 100 cm = 1000 cm

10 m 250 cm = 1000 cm + 250 cm = 1250 cm

# Kilometres and Metres

Note: To convert km to m simply put 3 zeroes on the right.

Example1: The distance from my house to my school is 5 km. what is the distance in metres

1 km = 1000 m

5 km = 5 x 1000 = 5000 m

Example2: Convert 6km 350m into metres

1 km = 1000 m

6 km = 6 x 1000 m = 6000 m

6 km 350 m = 6000 m + 350 m = 6350 m

Example 3: My friend lives 3245 m from my house. How many kilometres and metres is that

3245 m = 3000 m + 245 m

= 3 km + 245 m

= 3 km 245 m

# Addition of Kilometres and Metres

Example1 Add 22 km 986 m , 35 km 50 m and 9 km 4 m

= 22 km 986 m + 35 km 50 m + 9 km 4 m

= 67 km 40 m

# Subtraction of Kilometres and Metres

Example1: The distance from delhi to agra is 64 km 185 m. Peter travelled 49 km 365 m by bus and the rest by car. what distance did peter travel by car?

Distance travelled by car = Total Distance - distance travelled by bus

Distance travelled by car = 64 km 185 m - 49 km 365 m

Distance travelled by car = 14 km 820 m
