## cm to m converter

A centimeter (cm) is a unit of length in the metric system, which is based on powers of 10. A meter (m) is the base unit of length in the metric system, and it is equal to 100 centimeters.

To convert from centimeters to meters, we need to divide the number of centimeters by 100. For example, 50 cm is equal to 50 / 100 = 0.5 m.

We can also use a simple formula to convert from centimeters to meters:

`m = cm / 100`

where m is the length in meters and cm is the length in centimeters.

## How many centimeters in a meter?

As we learned in the previous section, a meter is equal to 100 centimeters. This means that there are 100 centimeters in one meter. We can also write this as a fraction:

`1 m = 100 cm`

or as a ratio:

`1 m : 100 cm`

We can use this relationship to convert any length in meters to centimeters by multiplying by 100. For example, 2.5 m is equal to 2.5 x 100 = 250 cm.

## How many centimeters are in a meter?

This is the same question as the previous one, but with a different wording. The answer is still 100 centimeters. Sometimes, people may use different words to ask the same question, so it is important to pay attention to the meaning and not just the words.

## How many centimeters in a kilometer?

A kilometer (km) is another unit of length in the metric system, and it is equal to 1000 meters. To convert from kilometers to centimeters, we need to multiply the number of kilometers by 1000 and then by 100. For example, 3 km is equal to 3 x 1000 x 100 = 300000 cm.

We can also use a formula to convert from kilometers to centimeters:

`cm = km x 100000`

where cm is the length in centimeters and km is the length in kilometers.

## Metric units of length conversion table

The following image and table shows some common metric units of length and their conversions to centimeters:

Unit | Symbol | Centimeters |
---|---|---|

millimeter | mm | 0.1 cm |

centimeter | cm | 1 cm |

decimeter | dm | 10 cm |

meter | m | 100 cm |

decameter | dam | 1000 cm |

hectometer | hm | 10000 cm |

kilometer | km | 100000 cm |

We can use this table to convert between different metric units of length by using the factor of 10. For example, to convert from decimeters to millimeters, we need to multiply by 10 and then by 10 again:

1 dm = 10 cm = 10 x 10 mm = 100 mm
