## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from centimeters to meters is 0.01, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 0.01 meters:

1 cm = 0.01 m

To convert 0.8 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 0.8 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 0.01 m

0.8 cm → L(m)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in meters:

L(m) = 0.8 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 0.008 m

The final result is:

0.8 cm → 0.008 m

We conclude that 0.8 centimeters is equivalent to 0.008 meters:

0.8 centimeters = 0.008 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 125 × 0.8 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 0.8 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 125 meters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that zero point eight centimeters is approximately zero point zero zero eight meters:

0.8 cm ≅ 0.008 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately one hundred twenty-five times zero point eight centimeters.
