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.

**Example:**

Convert 250m2 to centimeters squared.

**= 250 x 10,000**

**= 2,500,000cm². **
