850 hectare = ? km^2

850 ha (1 km/100 ha) = 8.5km^2

Is this conversions correct? not just the answer but also how I got to the answer. PLEASE let me know if im on the right track, thanks!

  • Math -

    ha is an area measure
    km is a length measure

    1 ha = 10,000m^2
    850 ha = 8,500,000 m^2

    1km = 1000m
    1km^2 = (1000m)^2 = 1,000,000 m^2

    so, 850 ha = 8.5 km^2

    so, your answer is correct, but your conversion factor should have been written

    1km^2 / 100ha
