Both meters and the centimeters are metric units of length with centimeter being equal to one hundredth of a meter.

A centimeter is abbreviated as cm while a meter is abbreviated as m.

**Formula to convert centimeters to meters.**

Since we already know that a centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a meter, this means that 100 cm are equivalent to 1m.

Therefore, when converting cm to m, we divide the cm by 100.

**Length in M = Length in cm ÷ 100**

**Example:**

Convert 150cm to m.

**= 150 ÷ 100**

**= 1.5m**
