##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

"cent" refers to 100. (century = 100 years, 100c = $1)

A 'centenarian' reaches 100 years old.

In the SI or metric system, there are 100 centimeters in 1 metre.

If you change a number to a smaller unit, the number gets bigger.

#### Explanation:

It takes 100 centimetres to make 1 metres
