# How Many Centimeters Are in a Meter

While it might seem complicated to determine how many meters are in one meter, there is an easy way to do so.

One hundred centimeters are contained in one meter.

To determine how many centimeters you have in a given amount of meters, multiply the number by 100.

It is the answer to how many centimeters make up the number of meters.

You would multiply 12 times 100 if you wanted to find how many centimeters you have in 12 meters.

You will get 1200 centimeters for every 12 meters.

You can also convert centimeters into meters by using the reverse formula.

Instead of multiplying by 100 the number meters, divide by 100 the number centimeters.
