To convert 6 million (6 mil) to kilometers (km), follow these step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Understand the conversion factor

– 1 kilometer (km) is equal to 1,000 meters (m).

– 1 meter (m) is equal to 0.001 kilometers (km).

Step 2: Set up the conversion equation

– Since we want to convert from million (mil) to kilometers (km), we need to use the conversion factor for meters to kilometers.

– 1 million (mil) is equal to 1,000,000 (1 million) meters (m).

Step 3: Convert million to meters

– Multiply the given value (6 million) by the conversion factor for million to meters.

– 6 million * 1,000,000 meters/million = 6,000,000,000 meters.

Step 4: Convert meters to kilometers

– Divide the value in meters (6,000,000,000 meters) by the conversion factor for meters to kilometers.

– 6,000,000,000 meters / 1,000 meters/kilometer = 6,000,000 kilometers.

Step 5: Round the answer (optional)

– If required, round the answer to an appropriate number of decimal places. In this case, 6,000,000 kilometers is already a rounded value.

Therefore, 6 million (6 mil) is equal to 6,000,000 kilometers (6,000,000 km).
