    convert km to mm

    Convert 35 km to millimeters.

    On this worksheet, I am supposed to use the prefixes for powers of 10.
    I dont understand. How do I set this up using powers of 10?

    3.5 x 10^1 = 35km

    3.5 x10^7 = 35000000mm

    possibly what you are looking for?

    \bigg(\frac{35km}{1}\bigg)\bigg(\frac{1000m}{1km}\  bigg)\bigg(\frac{1000mm}{1m}\bigg)

    Doing it this way is easier to keep up with your units.

    35km (1000m/1km) = x

    x(1000m/1m) = xx
