The metric system is easy to use because it is based on units of ten. How many centimeters are there in 100 meters? A. 10 B. 100 C. 1000 D. 10,000

8. Hero

x cm = 100m Solve for x

9. anonymous

10 right?

10. Hero

Are you guessing or did you actually solve for x?

11. Hero

centi = 1/100

12. Hero

$x \space\text{cm} = 100\text{m} \\ \frac{x}{100}\text{m} = 100\text{m}$ meters is a variable so it can be divided out: $\frac{x}{100} = 100$ $x = 100 \times 100$

10000 right?

Yup
