Conversion of Measuring Length

In conversion of measuring length we will learn how to convert meters into centimeters, kilometers into meters, centimeters into meters and meters into kilometers.

To convert meters into centimeters, multiply the number of meters by 100.

(i) 1 m = 100 cm

(ii) 2 m = 2 × 100 cm = 200 cm

(iii) 3 m = 3 × 100 cm = 300 cm

(iv) 5 m = 5 × 100 cm = 500 cm


To convert kilometers into meters, multiply the number of kilometers by 1000.

(i) 1 km = 1000 m

(ii) 2 km = 2 × 1000 m = 2000 m

(iii) 3 km = 3 × 1000 m = 3000 m

7 km = 7 × 1000 m = 7000 m


To convert centimeters into meters, divide the number of centimeters by 100 or put a fot (.) after 2 digits from right.

(i) 100 cm = 1.00 m or 1 m

(ii) 200 cm = 2.00 m or 2 m

(iv) 800 cm = 8.00 m or 8 m

(v) 1100 cm = 11.00 m or 11 m

100 cm = 100 ÷ 100 = 1 m

200 cm = 200 ÷ 100 = 2 m

800 cm = 800 ÷ 100 = 8 m

1100 cm = 1100 ÷ 100 = 11 m


To convert meters into kilometers, divide the number of meters by 1000 or put a dot (.) after 3 digits from right.

(i) 1000 m = 1000 ÷ 100 = 1 km or 1.000 km

(ii) 2000 m = 2000 ÷ 100 = 2 km or 2.000 km

(iii) 3000 m = 3000 ÷ 100 = 3 km or 3.000 km

(iv) 9000 m = 9000 ÷ 100 = 9 km or 9.000 km
