## 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 46.8 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 46.8 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

46.8 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 46.8 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 0.468 m

The final result is:

46.8 cm → 0.468 m

We conclude that 46.8 centimeters is equivalent to 0.468 meters:

46.8 centimeters = 0.468 meters
