Both meters and 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 meters to centimeters.**

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 m to cm, we multiply the m by 100.

**Length in cm = Length in m x 100**

**Example:**

Convert 32m to cm.

**= 32 x 100**

**= 3,200cm**
