Centimeter (abbreviation: cm): is a unit of length in the SI metric system, equal to one hundredth of a metre, centi being the prefix for a factor of 1/100. The centimetre was the base unit of length in the now deprecated centimetre–gram–second (CGS) system of units.


How to Convert Meters to Centimeters

Example: How many centimeters are equivalent to 51.01 meters?


As;

1 meters = 100 centimeters

51.01 meters = Y centimeters

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

Y equals 51.01 times 100 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51.01 * 100 / 1 = 5101 centimeters

Answer is: 5101 centimeters are equivalent to 51.01 meters.
