## 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 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 4 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 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 4 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 0.04 m

The final result is:

4 cm → 0.04 m

We conclude that 4 centimeters is equivalent to 0.04 meters:

4 centimeters = 0.04 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 25 × 4 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 4 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 25 meters.

## Approximate result

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

4 cm ≅ 0.04 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately twenty-five times four centimeters.
