The area in square centimeters is 18,000.

I find it easier to convert each term, multiply by (1) converting units

1.5 m (100cm/m) x 1.2 m (100cm/m) = 18,000 cm²

Area = 150 x 120 cm²

Area = 18 000 cm²

150 cm long and 120 cm wide:

Area = 18,000 cm^2

You might find it helpful to convert the measurements into cms first:

150 x 120 = 18,000 sq cm

1.5m = 150cm

1.2m = 120cm

150x120 = 18,000cm²

1.5 * 1.2 = 1.8 m²

You know that 1 m = 100 cm

So 1 m² = 100² cm² = 10 000 cm²

1.8 * 10 000 = 18 000

For volumes 1 m³ = 100³ cm³ = 1 000 000 cm³

Two ways. Calculate the area in m^2/ Use the conversion factor 1 m^2 = 10,000 cm^2 to find the area in cm^2

Or, convert the m to cm initially. Calculate the area which is in then in cm^2

It is 150 cm times 120 cm = 18,000 square cm

I'm sure you can type "150 x 120" on your calculator by yourself.

I don't think "Fredmethia" is very intelligent.
