# Express as metres using decimals.

(a) 15 cm

(b) 6 cm

(c) 2 m 45 cm

(d) 9 m 7 cm

(e) 419 cm

**Solution:**

As we know that 1 m = 100 cm.

To convert cm into metre we will divide and express them as decimals.

(a) 15 cm

15 / 100 = 0.15 m

(b) 6 cm

6 / 100 = 0.06 m

(c) 2 m 45 cm

(2 × 100 + 45) / 100 = 245/100 = 2.45 m

(d) 9 m 7 cm

(9 × 100 + 7) / 100 = 907/100 = 9.07 m

(e) 419 cm

419 / 100 = 4.19 m

## Express as metres using decimals. (a) 15 cm (b) 6 cm (c) 2 m 45 cm (d) 9 m 7 cm (e) 419 cm

**Summary:**

We divide centimetre value by 100 to get in metres as (a) 15 cm = 0.15 m (b) 6 cm = 0.06 m (c) 2 m 45 cm = 2.45 m (d) 9 m 7 cm = 9.07 m (e) 419 cm = 4.19 m
