Meters squared and centimeters squared are both units of area.
Area in meters is abbreviated as m² while area in centimeters is abbreviated as cm².
Formula to convert m² to cm²
We first need to understand the relationship between meters and centimeters. It states that;
1 meter = 100 centimeters
Then we should be able to understand what it means by squared. It means that you multiply the unit by itself.
Therefore, we can say,
1m² = 100cm x 100cm
Which can also be written as:
1m² = 10,000cm²
In conclusion, we can say that when converting meters squared to centimeters squared we multiply the m² by 10,000cm².
Convert 250m2 to centimeters squared.
= 250 x 10,000
