# How do you convert 1000 cm to meters?

Length conversion is the process of converting lengths from one unit to another. We will use the fact that 1 meter is equal to 100 centimeters.

## Answer: To convert the 1000 centimeters (cm) to meters (m), we divide 1000 centimeters by 100 i.e., 1000 cm = 10 m.

Let's convert 1000 cm to meters.

**Explanation:**

The base unit to calculate the length in the SI system is 1 meter. It is denoted as m.

Mathematically, 'centi ' means 1/100 of a unit.

1 meter = 100 centimeters

1 centimeter = 1/100 of a meter

So, 1 cm = 1/100 m

⇒ 1000 cm = 1000 × (1/100) m = 10 m

### Hence, 1000 cm is equivalent to 10 meters.
