Answer

The batter ran a distance of 0.216 kilometers.

Work Step by Step

We can find the total distance $d$ in meters. $d = 2\times 4\times 27~m = 216~m$ We know that 1 km = 1000 m We can convert the distance to units of km. $d = \frac{216~m}{1}\times \frac{1~km}{1000~m} = 0.216~km$ The batter ran a distance of 0.216 kilometers.
