How to Convert Meters to Centimeters

Example: How many centimeters are equivalent to 70.63 meters?


As;

1 meters = 100 centimeters

70.63 meters = Y centimeters

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

Y equals 70.63 times 100 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 70.63 * 100 / 1 = 7063 centimeters

Answer is: 7063 centimeters are equivalent to 70.63 meters.
