## 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 40.5 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 40.5 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

40.5 cm → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 40.5 cm × 0.01 m

L_{(m)} = 0.405 m

The final result is:

40.5 cm → 0.405 m

We conclude that **40.5 centimeters is equivalent to 0.405 meters**:

40.5 centimeters = 0.405 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 2.4691358024691 × 40.5 centimeters**.
