##### 2 Answers

Yes. One cubic meter = 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

#### Explanation:

Here's why. You started with

**1 meter = 100 centimeters**

Now, in order to figure out the number of cubic centimeters in a cubic meter, you're going want to cube both sides. Why cube? Well, because it's **cubic** centimeters and **cubic** meters.

Since

#"1 cubic meter" = "1 meter"^3#

and

#"1 cubic centimeter" = "1 centimeter"^3#

we can rewrite the equation as follows:

Hope this helped! I know that this was a slightly unclear explanation of cubic units and regular units but I tried to the best of my ability to help make the concept as clear as possible. All the best!

This says that there are 1 million cubic centimeters in a cubic meter

#### Explanation:

All that they are asking is to start with the following equation:

Raise both sides of the equation to the third power:

Perform the implied multiplication:

This says that there are 1 million cubic centimeters in a cubic meter
