The formulas for conversion are represented below:

cm = m * 100

Example: 2 Meters in Centimeters:

cm = m * 100

cm = 2 * 100

cm = 200

m = cm / 100

Example: 250 Centimeters in Meters:

m = cm / 100

m = 100 / 100

m = 2.5

Considering that 1 Meter equals 100 Centimeters, you can use a rule of three to get that **10 Meters equal 1000 Centimeters**.

1 m - 100 cm

10 m - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x ~~m~~ = 1000 cm^{2}

x = 1000cm

If every 100 Centimeters we have 1 Meter, just divide the number of Centimeters (160) by 100, so you will get that **160 cm equals 1.6 m**. Observe the calculation below:

m = cm / 100

m = 160 / 100

m = 1.6
