As far as I know, $\text{1 hectogram} \equiv 100 \cdot g$.

#### Explanation:

And $\text{1 centigram} \equiv {10}^{-} 2 \cdot g$

And thus there are ${10}^{4}$ ${\text{centigrams"*"hectogram}}^{-} 1$

So, $2 \cdot {\cancel{\text{hectograms"xx10^4*"centigrams"*cancel"hectogram}}}^{-} 1$

$= 2 \times {10}^{4} \cdot \text{centigram}$
