## 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 3.1 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 3.1 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

3.1 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 3.1 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 0.031 m

The final result is:

3.1 cm → 0.031 m

We conclude that 3.1 centimeters is equivalent to 0.031 meters:

3.1 centimeters = 0.031 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 32.258064516129 × 3.1 centimeters.
