## 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 8.5 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 8.5 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

8.5 cm → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 8.5 cm × 0.01 m

L_{(m)} = 0.085 m

The final result is:

8.5 cm → 0.085 m

We conclude that **8.5 centimeters is equivalent to 0.085 meters**:

8.5 centimeters = 0.085 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 11.764705882353 × 8.5 centimeters**.
