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.
We know that standard unit of length is meter. Smaller
lengths are measure in centimeters which is written as cm. Kilometer is the
bigger unit of length.
1 meter = 100 centimeters
1 kilometers = 1000 meters
So, to convert meter into centimeters we multiply by 100 and
centimeters into meters we divide by 100. To convert kilometer into meters we
multiply by 1000 and meters into kilometers we divide by 1000.
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
