cm to metres
there's 100 cm in a metre
to convert cm to metres, multiply by (1m/100cm) and cancel the units:
16.9 cm * (1 m / 100 cm) = 0.169 m
Whenever you have to change units, simply write the equivalent amounts of the the starting and ending units (100 cm and 1 m in this case) as a fraction, with the unit you want to lose on the bottom and multiply the starting value by this.

As we know:
100cm -> 1m
1cm -> 1/100m
