Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another

Forum rules

Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

The easiest thing to find this out is to convert all of these measurements into the same units:

There are 100 centimeters to the meter, so 1800 cm = 18 meters
Threre are 1000 meters per kilometers, so 0.0017 km = 1.7 metes
Finally, you have 2.1 meters.

So: 1800 cm is the larger.
