**Conversion of Centimetre to metre: **Centimetres and metres are used to measure the length & distance in the metric system. A length of 0.01 centimetres makes a metre. This article will help you to convert centimetre to metre.

A centimetre is a unit of length that is equal to one-hundredth of a metre in the International System of Standards (SI). It is denoted as ‘cm’ in short.

**Common Usage:**

- Used to measure the length of textbooks.
- Used to measure the length of pens.
- Used to measure the length of bottles.

In the International System of Units (SI), a metre is a primary unit of length. It’s denoted by ‘m’ in short.

**Common Usage: **

- Used to measure the length of a dining table.
- Used to measure the length of window curtain fabric.
- Used to measure the length of a room.

To convert centimetre to metre, multiply the required centimetres by 0.01. As

1 cm = 0.01 m

**The formula** **to convert centimetres to metres is** **given below: **

X Centimetres = X × 0.01 metres

where X is the value in centimetres.

**Problem 1**: Convert 60 centimetres to metres.**Solution** **1: **

Step 1: The given centimetres are 60.

Step 2: Apply the conversion formula to convert 60 centimetres to metres.

Step 3: Formula,

X Centimetres = X × 0.01 metres

Step 4: Substitute the values at the required places. Hence,

60 Centimetres = 60 × 0.01 metres

= 0.6 metres.

Therefore, 60 centimetres is 0.6 metres.

**Problem 2**: Convert 45 centimetres to metres.**Solution 2:**

Step 1: The given centimetres are 45.

Step 2: Apply the conversion formula to convert 45 centimetres to metres.

Step 3: As mentioned above example, substitute the values at the required places. Hence,

45 centimetres = 45 × 0.01 metres

= 0.45 metres

**Problem 3**: Convert 500 centimetres to metres. **Solution** **3: **

**Step 1**: The given centimetres are 500. **Step 2**: Substitute the values at the required places in the formula. **Step 3**: Hence,

500 Centimetres = 0.01 × 500 metres

= 5 metres.

Therefore, 500 centimetres is 5 metres.

**Problem 4**: Convert 400 centimetres to metres.**Solution** **4: **

Step 1: The given centimetres are 400.

Step 2: Substitute the values at the required places in the formula.

Step 3: Hence,

400 centimetres = 0.01 × 400 metrres

= 4 metres.

Therefore, 400 centimetres is 4 metres.**Problem 5**: Convert 950 centimetres to metres. **Solution** **5: **

Step 1: The given centimetres are 950.

Step 2: Substitute the values at the required places in the formula.

Step 3: Hence,

950 centimetres = 0.01 × 950

= 9.5 metres

Therefore, 950 centimetres is 9.5 metres.

**How do you convert centimetres to metres?**

To convert centimetres to metres, multiply the required centimetres by 0.01, as

1 cm = 0.01 m **Formula**,

X Centimetres = X × 0.01 metres

where X is the value in centimetres.

**How many cm means 1 metre?**

1 cm = 0.01 m

**How do you convert cm to m 5?**

To convert centimetres to metres, multiply the required centimetres by 0.01, as

1 cm = 0.01 m **Formula**,

X Centimetres = X × 0.01 metres

Hence,

5 cm = 0.01 × 5

= 0.05 m

Therefore, 5 centimetres is 0.05 metres.

**How do we convert 3 cm to metres?**

To convert centimetres to metres, multiply the required centimetres by 0.01, as

1 cm = 0.01 m **Formula**,

X Centimetres = X × 0.01 metres

Hence,

3 cm = 3 × 0.01 m

= 0.03 m

Therefore, 3 centimetres is 0.03 metres.

**What is 10 cm less than a Metre?**

10 cm is 0.1 m

**Which is bigger cm or m?**

Metre is a bigger unit of measurement than centimetre. In the International System of Units (SI), a metre is a primary unit of length. It’s denoted by ‘m’ in short. And a centimetre is a unit of length that is equal to one-hundredth of a metre in the International System of Standards (SI). It is denoted as ‘cm’ in short. So, metre (m) is the biggest unit of measurement in comparison to centimetre (cm).
