## How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

### Centimeters to Meters Formula

m = cm / 100

Example: 100 Centimeters in Meters:

m = cm / 100

m = 100 / 100

m = 1

### Meters to Centimeters Formula

cm = m * 100

Example: 5 Meters in Centimeters:

cm = m * 100

cm = 5 * 100

cm = 500

## Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

### 50 Centimeters are equal to how many Meters

Considering that 1 Centimeter is equivalent to 0.01 Meter, you can use a rule of three to obtain that 50 Centimeter equals 0.5 Meter.

1 cm - 0,01 m

50 cm - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x cm = 0,5 cm2

x = 0,5 m

### 190 Meters is equal to how many Centimeters?

If there are 100 centimeters for every 1 meter, just multiply the number of meters (190) by 100, so you will get that 190 m equals 19,000 cm. Observe the calculation below:

cm = m * 100

cm = 190 * 100

cm = 19000
