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.

Bunnel, plz needs your suggestion on this. If the question asks to convert 100 square centimeters to square meters then the answers posted above are correct: \(1m^2=1m*1m=100cm*100cm=10,000cm^2\); \(100cm^2=0.01m^2\). Please check the question.

How are you all getting a decimal (0.01m^2)? I'm not understanding the steps. Thanks so much

100 cm = 1m .....(1) (1) implies 1cm = 0.01m....(2) Multiply (1) and (2) 100 cmx1cm = 1mx.01m => 100 cm2 = 0.01 m2 Please post Kudos if you like the method...

Check other Conversion problems to practice in Special Questions Directory. P.S. It's enough to tag only me. No need to tag others. Even better of you use report a problem button instead.

100 cm = 1 m 1 cm = 1/100 m 1cm^2 = 1/1000 * m^2 * 100 = 0.01 m^2 B

I dont have the OA, please help me with the concept. This problem sounds easy, but i am not able to crack it. 100cm= 1m or say 1cm = 0.01m 1cm^2 = 0.01m^2 IMO B

A more straight forward version from the question tags to start off
100 cm = 1 m
square both sides to get cm^2 and m^2
10000 cm^2 = 1 m^2
divide by 100 to get what is asked in the question
100 cm^2 = 0.01 m^2.
Option B
Let me know if it looks simplified.
