What is a Centimeter?
A Centimeter (abbreviation, cm) is a unit for measuring length in the metric system of measurement. A Centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a metre (1/100).
The centimetre remains a practical unit of length for many everyday measurements of the length of objects and small distances.
A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

Today, only the United States, Burma, and Liberia use the imperial system, and all other countries use the metric system.
How to Convert Centimeter to Meters?
To convert Centimeter to Meters, simply divide the Centimeter value by 100.
The formula used to calculate Centimeter to Meters -
d(cm) = d(m) / 100
The distance d in Meters (m) is equal to the distance d in Centimeters (cm) divided by 100.
How many Meters in a Centimeter
In simple terms, 1 cm is equal to 0.01 m.
The formula used is 1/100 = 0.01(m)
How many Centimeters in a Meter
1 Meter is equal to 100 Centimeters. So we can also say that there are 100 Centimeters in a Meter.
