You want to convert 100 square cm to sqare m

100cm = 1m
so, 10 cm = 0.1 m
=> 100 square cm = 10 cm* 10 cm = 0.1 m* 0.1 m = 0.01 square m

100 cm = 1 m .

100*100 cm^2 = 1 m ^2.

100 cm^2 = ( 1/100 ) m^2 = 0.01 m^2.

If the question asks to convert 100 square centimeters to square meters then the answers posted above are correct: 1m^2=1m*1m=100cm*100cm=10,000cm^2 --> 100cm^2=0.01m^2.
