## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from meters to centimeters is 100, which means that 1 meter is equal to 100 centimeters:

1 m = 100 cm

To convert 188 meters into centimeters we have to multiply 188 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from meters to centimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 m → 100 cm

188 m → L(cm)

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

L(cm) = 188 m × 100 cm

L(cm) = 18800 cm

The final result is:

188 m → 18800 cm

We conclude that 188 meters is equivalent to 18800 centimeters:

188 meters = 18800 centimeters
