Centimeters (cm) to Meters (m) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates a value you enter in centimeters (cm) and converts it to its equivalent value in meters (m).

How many centimeters (cm) are in a meter (m)? What is the formula for how to convert centimeters to meters (cm to m)?

1 centimeter (cm) = 0.01 meter (m)
So we can say that there is 0.01 meter in 1 centimeter.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a meter unit of measurement is 0.01.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters (cm)
So we can say that there are 100 centimeters in 1 meter.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a centimeter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a meter unit of measurement is 100.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in centimeters to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in meters (cm to m). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

m = cm ร— 0.01 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

m = cm รท 100 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 300 centimeters that you want to convert to meters, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

m = 300 cm ร— 0.01 = 3 m
m = 300 cm รท 100 = 3 m

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 3 meters.
