## 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 28.5 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 28.5 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

28.5 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 28.5 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 0.285 m

The final result is:

28.5 cm → 0.285 m

We conclude that 28.5 centimeters is equivalent to 0.285 meters:

28.5 centimeters = 0.285 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 3.5087719298246 × 28.5 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 28.5 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 3.5087719298246 meters.

## Approximate result

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

28.5 cm ≅ 0.285 m

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