Examples of the conversion of Metre to Centimetre

Problem 1: Convert 200 metres to centimetres.
Solution 1:

Step 1: The given value is 200 metres.
Step 2: To convert metres to centimetres, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X m = X × 100 cm
Hence,
200 m = 200 × 100 cm
= 20000 cm

455 m = 455 × 100 cm
= 45500 cm
Therefore, 455 metres is 45500 centimetres.

Problem 5: Convert 2 metres to centimetres.
Solution 5:

Step 1: The given value is 2 metres.
Step 2: To convert metres to centimetres, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X m = X × 100 cm
Hence,
2 m = 2 × 100 cm
= 200 cm
Therefore, 2 metre is 200 centimetres.
