Because both systems are based on the number 100. There are 100 cents to the dollar, and 100 centimetres to the metre.
to move meters to centimeters you have to move the decimal to the right 2 times
There are 100 centimeters in a meters. So the total would be 5600 centimeters.
One meter = 100 centimeters.
Take the number of centimeters, move the decimal point 2 places this way and you have meters.Take the number of meters, move the decimal point 2 places that way ---> and you have centimeters.
The decimal point moves to the left.
A centimeter is a one hundredth of a meter. To easily convert centimeters to meters simply move the decimal to the left two times.
0.18 meters =18 cm. when converting from meters to centimeters, you move the decimal point two spaces to the right.
Move the decimal point over twice, exp. : 540 centimeters equals 5.4 meters
12 centimeters =
move the decimal to the left
The decimal point moves to the right.
To the left.
You move it to the right.

It is: 45 cm = 0.45 meters or 9/20 meters
1 meter is 100 centimeters (that's what the centi- part means). If you want to convert meters to centimeters, all you need to do is move the decimal point 2 spaces to the right. 3.61 meters is therefore 361 centimeters.
to the left (number gets smaller)
It is moved 2 places to the left.
0.000468 meters in Scientific Notation = 4.68 x 10-4 meters.Move 4 decimal places to the right to obtain negative exponent for base 10. Therefore, the number in scientific notation is 4.68 x 10-4 meters.
There is 100 centimeters in every meter so 0.09 (0.9 would be 90 centimeters)
5 places to the left.
2.131 meters equles 213.1 centimeters because there is 100 centeimeters in a meter so you move the decimal over two places.
Given that you are converting 36 cm to meters, it is.. 0.36 meters, which is... 3.6 x 10-1 m
