## How many centimeters are there in a meter?

1 meter contains 100 centimeters. Alternatively, we can consider 1 centimeter to be equal to 0.01 meters.

Meters and centimeters are units of distance in the metric system. We use the abbreviation m to represent meters and the abbreviation cm to represent centimeters.

The meter is the base unit of distance in the metric system and all other units are derived using suffixes. The centi suffix means 10-2, so we multiply meters by 0.01 to get centimeters.

## How to convert meters to centimeters?

We know that 1 meter is equal to 100 centimeters, so if we have a distance in meters, we multiply it by 100 to obtain its equivalent in millimeters. Therefore, we can form the following formula:

#### Example 1:

Convert 24 meters to centimeters.

To find the number of centimeters, we multiply the meters by 100. Therefore, we have:

d(cm) = 24 × 100

d(cm) = 2400 cm

#### Example 2:

How many centimeters are equal to 5.23 meters?

If we multiply the meters by 100, we have:

d(cm) = 5.23 × 100

d(cm) = 523 cm

#### Example 3:

Convert 57.06 meters to centimeters.

By multiplying the given distance by 100, we have:

d(cm) = 57.86 × 100

d(cm) = 5786 cm
