## 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 4.8 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 4.8 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

4.8 cm → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 4.8 cm × 0.01 m

L_{(m)} = 0.048 m

The final result is:

4.8 cm → 0.048 m

We conclude that **4.8 centimeters is equivalent to 0.048 meters**:

4.8 centimeters = 0.048 meters
