Step 3: The process used to convert centimeters to meters will be shown below.

## What is the relationship between centimeters and meters?

1 meter contains 100 centimeters. Alternatively, 1 centimeter is equal to 0.01 meters.

Centimeters and meters are units of distance in the metric system. The meter is the base unit of distance or length in the International System of Units.

All other units are derived from the meter using suffixes. In this case, centi means 10-2, so we multiply by 0.01 to get the number of centimeters.

## How to transform from centimeters to meters?

Since 1 meter is equal to 100 centimeters, we have to divide the centimeters by 100 to get the meters. Therefore, we can find a distance d in meters (m) by dividing the given distance d in centimeters by 100.

#### Example 1:

How many meters equals 300 centimeters?

We can divide the given distance by 100 to get:

d(m) = 300/100

d(m) = 3 m

#### Example 2:

Convert 2500 centimeters to meters.

To get the number of meters, we have to divide the centimeters by 100:

d(m) = 2500/100

d(m) = 25 m

#### Example 3:

Convert 55 centimeters to meters.

Dividing the given distance by 100, we have:

d(m) = 55/100

d(m) = 0.55 m
