There are 1000 meters in a kilometer, thus, 0.001 kilometers in a meter. The metric system is an easy system to convert once you learn how the units of measurement are related.

1 kilometer (km) = 1 meter (1 x 10^3 m)

1 meter (m) = 1 m

1 centimeter (cm) = .01 m (1 x 10^-2 m)

1 millimeter (mm) = .001 m (1 x 10^-3 m)

1 micrometer (um) = 0.000001 m (1 x 10^-6 m)

1 nanometer (nm) = 0.000000001m (1 x 10^-9m)

There are a 1000 metres in a kilometre. so.

1 / 1000 = 0.001 metres in a kilometre.

If you were thinking millimetres in a metre then there are 1000!

Because a kilometer is 1000 meters, there are 1/1000 kilometers in a meter.

1/1000 OR .001 OR 10^-3 kilometers per meter.

1000 meters equals 1 kilometer because the prefix kilo means thousand. So a simple calculation of 1 km/1000 m equals 0,001 km.

...Since kilo means a 1,000 therefore kilometer means a 1,000 meters.

so 1 meter would be 1/1000 of a kilometer.

1 kilometer = 10 hectometers = 100 dekameters = 1000 meters

OR

0.001 kilometer= one meter.

1 kilometer is equal to 1000 metres. Therefore there are 0.001 (=1/1000) kilometres in a meter.
