## Elementary and Intermediate Algebra: Concepts & Applications (6th Edition)

To convert from kilometers per hour to meters per second, just multiply the rate in kilometers per hour by $\dfrac{1000\text{ meters per km}}{3600\text{ seconds per hour}}$
Note that there are: 1000 meters in a kilometer 3600 seconds in an hour. Thus, to convert from kilometers per hour to meters per second, just multiply the rate in kilometers per hour by $\dfrac{1000\text{ meters per km}}{3600\text{ seconds per hour}}$
