In physics, distance is defined as the physical measurement of how far an object has moved. Distance is a scalar quantity. SI unit of distance is a meter according to the International System of Units. Interestingly, using this as the base unit and some equations, many other derived units or quantities are formed like volume, area, acceleration, and speed. Other units of length are derived from the meter. Thus, $1$ kilometre (km) equals $1000$ meters, $1$ centimetre (cm) equals $\dfrac{1}{100}$ meter, and so on. Even the old British and American units, such as the inch and the mile, are now defined in terms of the metric system.
\begin{align} & 1km=1000m \\ & \Rightarrow 1m=\dfrac{1}{1000}km \\ & \Rightarrow 2435m=\dfrac{2435}{1000}km=\dfrac{487}{200}km=2\dfrac{87}{200}km \\ \end{align}
Therefore, after converting metres into kilometres and further converting the obtained fraction into a mixed fraction, we can say that $2435m=2\dfrac{87}{200}km$ .
