# Metres and Centimetres Conversion

In Metres and Centimetres Conversion we will learn how to convert metres (m) into centimetres (cm) and centimetres (cm) into metres (m).

I: Meters to Centimeters Conversion (m to cm):

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

For example:

1. Convert 7 m into centimetres.

Solution:

1 m = 100 cm

7 m = 100 × 7

= 700 c

2. Convert 5 m 40 cm into centimetres.

Solution:

1 m = 100 cm

5 m = 100 × 5 = 500 cm

5 m 40 cm = 500 + 40 = 540 cm

II:  Centimeters to Meters Conversion (cm to m):

To convert centimetres into metres, we divide the number of centimetres by 100.

For example:

1. Convert 400cm into metres.

Solution:

1 cm = $$\frac{1}{100}$$m

400cm = $$\frac{400}{100}$$ m

= 4 m

2. Convert 700 cm into metres.

Solution:

1 cm = $$\frac{1}{100}$$ m

700 cm = $$\frac{700}{100}$$ m

= 7 m

III:  Centimeters into Meters and Centimeters Conversion (cm to m):

To convert centimetres into metres and centimetres, we will first transform the given number of centimetres into a multiple of 100. This will give the number of metres in the given number of centimetres. The remaining number will be in centimetres.

For example:

1. Convert 520 cm into metres and centimetres.

Solution:

520 cm = 500 cm + 20 cm

500 cm = 5 m

520 cm = 5 m 20 cm

2. Convert 640 cm into metres.

Solution:

640 cm = 600 cm + 40 cm

600 cm = $$\frac{600}{100}$$ m = 6 m

640 cm = 6 m + 40 cm

= 6 m 40 cm

3. Convert 825 cm into metres.

Solution:

825 cm = 800 cm + 25 cm

800 cm = $$\frac{800}{100}$$ m = 8m

825 cm = 8 m + 25 cm

= 8 m 25 cm
