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
Convert 32m to cm.
= 32 x 100
