One centimeter equals 0.01 meters, to convert 5 centimeters to meters we have to multiply the amount of centimeters by 0.01 to obtain the width, height or length in meters. 5 centimeters are equal to 5 x 0.01 = 0.05 meters.

The centimeter (symbol: cm) is a unit of length in the metric system. It is also the base unit in the centimeter-gram-second system of units. The centimeter practical unit of length for many everyday measurements. A centimeter is equal to 0.01 (or 1E-2) meter.

The meter (symbol: m) is the fundamental unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as "the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second." In 1799, France start using the metric system, and that is the first country using the metric.

To calculate a centimeter value to the corresponding value in meters, just multiply the quantity in centimeters by 0.01 (the conversion factor).

meters = centimeters * 0.01

The factor 0.01 is the result from the division 1 / 100 (meter definition). Therefore, another way would be:

meters = centimeters / 100
