wait are you asking how to convert cm in meter? Could you clarify your question? cause 100cm = 1m, thus 1cm = 0.01m

Once cm is the equivalent of 1.0 x 10^-2 m. The prefix centi means that it is one hundredth. For example, if you want to convert 15 cm into m, you would do 15 x 10^-2, which would give you 0.15 m.
