# How Many Centimeters Are In A Meter?

Centimeters and meters are directly related units of length, thus it is very easy to convert centimeters to meters and meters to centimeters.

In order to convert centimeters to meters and meters to centimeters, feel free to use our conversion chart, and conversion calculator, but also, learn the relationship between these units.

Just be aware that the "centi (c)" is one of the official unit prefixes in the International System (SI) of Units and means one-hundredth (1/100 = 1/10^{2} = 10^{-2}) - so one centimeter is one-hundredth of one meter.

## Conversion Formulas

Both centimeters (cm) and meters (m) are units of length, with the following relation between them:

**1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters (cm)**

**1 centimeter (cm) = 1/100 meter = 0.01 meter (m)**

Again, "centi (c)" is one of the official unit prefixes in the International System (SI) of Units and means one-hundredth (1/100 = 1/10^{2} = 10^{-2}) - one centimeter is one-hundredth of a meter.

Thus, in order to convert the length given in centimeters into the length given in meters and vice versa, be sure to remember the following formulas:

**L _{meters} = L_{centimeters }/ 100**

**L _{centimeters} = L_{meters }* 100**

## Centimeters to Meters and Meters to Centimeters Conversion Examples

Using conversion formulas, it is fairly easy to convert centimeters to meters and meters to centimeters:

### 500 centimeters to meters:

**L _{(m)} = 500 centimeters / 100 = 5 m**

### 3.675 meters to centimeters:

**L _{(mm)} = 3.675 meters * 100 = 367.5 cm**

Centimeters are very small lengths often measured with measuring tapes featuring centimeters and meters on one side and inches, feet, and yards on the other side of the measuring tape.

So, when converting centimeters to meters and meters to centimeters, just be sure to multiply and divide by 100 and that is all.
