How to Convert Centimeters to Meters

Example: How many meters are equivalent to 19.41 centimeters?


1 centimeters = 0.01 meters

19.41 centimeters = Y meters

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 19.41 times 0.01 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 19.41 * 0.01 / 1 = 0.1941 meters

Answer is: 0.1941 meters are equivalent to 19.41 centimeters.
