The circumference of the earth is 25,000 mi at the equator. What is the circumference in kilometers? in meter?
 I really don't understand how to concer this. Please help!

1 mile = about 1.61 km.
Multiply: 25,000 * 1.61 = ? km
1 km = 1,000 m
Multiply your km answer by 1,000.

To be more accurate for the meters 
1 mile = 1 609.344 meters
Multiply: 25,000 * 1,609.344 = ? m

Chemistry  Ms. Sue, Monday, July 21, 2008 at 5:33pm
kg = kilogram (measures mass)
km = kilometer (measures distance)
Yes. Follow the steps I gave you to find the answers.

The more accurate answer is 40,233,600 meters. But many teachers would probably accept the other answer, also.

Is that 40250000 is the right answer.
