### .741cm to m?

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### What do 1.6 meters plus 11 centimeters equal?

The centi- prefix (c) means 1/100
→ 1 cm = 1/100 m = 0.01 m
→ 100 cm = 100 × 1/100 m = 1 m
Convert to the same units then do the addition, either:
convert to cm:
1.6 m = 1.6 × 100 cm = 160 cm
→ 1.6 m + 11 cm = 160 cm + 11 cm = 171 cm
convert to m:
11 cm = 11 × 0.01 m = 0.11 m
→ 1.6 m + 11 cm = 1.6 m + 0.11 m = 1.71 m
Use the conversion which is easier to work with or is the
required units of the answer.
