## What does “K mean“?

So let’s see, what “K means”? If I only write K then it can have many meanings like,

• In Chemistry, K means Potassium.
• In Physics, K means Kelvin.

But the K we are talking about is related to math and here K means ‘Kilo’ which has a total of 1000 units. In such a situation, 1K means 1 Kilo i.e. 1000 units.

### What does “1k means“?

As we have seen above K means ‘kilo’ which has 1000 units. So if we see 1k then it would be like

1k  =  1 x 1000 = 1000 = 1 thousand

We can write 1k in numbers is equal to 1000 because on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, or any social website it donates 1k views, 1k followers, or 1k comments instead of 1000.

### What does “2k means“?

2k = 2 x 1000 = 2000 = 2 thousand

On social media like Facebook, Instagram, etc. If someone gets 2000 likes on their pic then it will be displayed as 2k.

### What does “10k means“?

Similarly, as we have seen above “K means” kilo, which means 1000 units. so if we saw 10k followers on someones Instagram account then its means –

10k = 10 x 1000 = 10000 followers = 10 thousand followers

### What does “100k means“?

I think you have got complete knowledge about “k” and should also have an idea of what 100k means. If your answer is 100000 (1 lakh) then you are absolutely right. But again I show you below –

100k = 100 x 1000 = 100000 = 1 lakh

## What does “M means“?

Many people already knew the meaning of 1M because it has not been changed, It comes from mathematical terms that are used in counting. M stands for Million. Million is a unit which means one Million or 10 lakhs.

### what does “1m means“?

As we knew, M means million which is equal to 10 lakhs (1000000). S0 whenever you see 1m on any social media platform then it means –

1m = 1 x 1 Million = 1 x 1000000 = 10 lakhs.

So whenever you saw any figure like ‘2m’, ‘5m’, ’10m’ or ‘1.5m’, ‘10.2m’ and you want to find the number behind that then just multiply that figure with 10 lakhs (10,00000). Like –

2m = 2 x 1000000 = 2000000 = 20 lakhs

5m = 5 x 1000000 = 5000000 = 50 lakhs

10m = 5 x 1000000 = 1,00,00000 = 1 crore

1.5m = 1.5 x 1000000 = 15000000 = 15 lakhs

10.2m = 10.2 x 1000000 = 12000000 = 1 crore 20 lakhs

## Benefits of writing 1k or 1m?

You may be thinking, what are the benefits of these, if we write 1000 instead of 1k then what are the problems? No, there is no problem if you write 1000 instead of 1k. you can also 1000000 instead of 1M. But just think once how would it look on social media platforms. Might be you will also not it, if there are 1 crore followers on someones Instagram page then you will also prefer to write 10M instead of 100000000.

## Conclusion –
