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
