I am confusing myself when converting from km/h to m/s

I understand that if you have 100km/h you take 100 * 1000 / 3600 = 27.78m/s

But where i get confused is if you have 1km and you want meters you *1000 but if you have 1hr and you want seconds you also have to *3600 (not divide)

I'm sure I'm just looking at it the wrong way can someone explain it better?
