## 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 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 3 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 cm → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 3 cm × 0.01 m

L_{(m)} = 0.03 m

The final result is:

3 cm → 0.03 m

We conclude that **3 centimeters is equivalent to 0.03 meters**:

3 centimeters = 0.03 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 33.333333333333 × 3 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *3 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 33.333333333333 meters*.

## Approximate result

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

3 cm ≅ 0.03 m

An alternative is also that *one meter is approximately thirty-three point three three three times three centimeters*.
