There are 100cm in 1 meter.

There are two dimensions needed to create an area, call them height and width.

Let's say we have a rectangle of height 100cm and width 100cm (this is a 1 meter x 1 meter square). Now the area of the rectangle is height times width, so 100cm x 100cm = 10000 cm^2. But we've already stated that this is a 1 meter x 1 meter square, so has an area of 1 square meter. So 1 square meter = 10000 square centimetres.

Important point to remember is that each dimension needs to be converted from cm to meters.

So, if you work out the area in square cm then divide your answer by 10000 to get the area in square meters.

Similarly if you work out an area in square meters, but the question asks for an answer in square cm, then multiply your answer by 10000.

If a problem is given in mixed units (one in cm and one in meters) convert both to the same units first. Do not multiply a distance in cm by one in meters; the answer will be invalid. It's a popular trick to catch you out, so look out for it!

Conversion of volume is similar, but use a factor of one million (100 x 100 x 100).

square cm to square meters divide by 10,000

This is because there 100 cm in a meter so there 100 x 100 sq cm in a sq meter

You can't convert cm (linear measurement) into square meters (measurement of area)

Easiest way :

1220mm X 2440mm = 122cm X 244 cm

1 mt = 100 cm so, considering the 2 zero from hundred to left

Calculate 1.22 X 2.44 = get Sqm.

for example 1 tile 20*Cm and received Qty 1435 pcs tiles so how you convert to the Square meter?

20*20cm=400 SCM

1 tile =400*1/10000=0.04 SQM

1435*0.04 SQM =57.4 SQM
