10 millimeters (mm) = 
1 centimeter (cm) 
10 centimeters = 
1 decimeter (dm) = 100 millimeters 
100 centimeter = 
1 meter (m) = 1,000 millimeters 
1000 meters = 
1 kilometer (km) 
Example: To get Centimeters from Meters you multiply the Meters by 10
You Have: 23 Meters
You want Centimters: So, Centimeters = 23 Meters
We Multiply the meters by 100:
You want Centimters: So, Centimeters = 23 Meters
There are 2300 centimeters in 23 meters or 100 centimeters for every meter.
