# How do you convert 700 centimeters to meters?

Oct 24, 2016

$700 \cdot c m \equiv 7.00 \cdot m$

#### Explanation:

The $\text{c}$ prefix in $\text{cm}$ stands for $\text{centi}$, i.e. ${10}^{-} 2$.

Thus $700 \cdot c m \equiv 700 \times {10}^{-} 2 m$ $=$ $7.00 \cdot m$

$700 \text{ centimetres" = 7" metres}$

#### Explanation:

We require to know the following fact.

$\textcolor{red}{\overline{\underline{| \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} \textcolor{b l a c k}{1 \text{ metre" =100" centimetres"" or } 1 m = 100 c m} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\frac{2}{2}} |}}}$

$100 \text{ cm"to1"m}$

$\Rightarrow \left(7 \times 100\right) \text{cm"to(7xx1)"m}$

Hence 700 cm = 7m

Alternatively : (700"cm")/(100"cm")=7"m"
