How to Convert Centimeters to Meters

Example: How many meters are equivalent to 73.25 centimeters?


1 centimeters = 0.01 meters

73.25 centimeters = Y meters

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

Y equals 73.25 times 0.01 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 73.25 * 0.01 / 1 = 0.7325 meters

Answer is: 0.7325 meters are equivalent to 73.25 centimeters.
