This example problem demonstrates how to convert centimeters to meters.

Converting Centimeters To Meters Problem

Express 3,124 centimeters in meters.

### Conversion Solution

1 meter = 100 centimeters

Set up the conversion so the desired unit will be cancelled out. In this case, we want m to be the remaining unit.

distance in m = (distance in cm) x (1 m/100 cm)

distance in m = (3124/100) m

distance in m = 31.24 m**Answer:**

3124 centimeters is 31.24 meters.
