460000 square centimetres
equals what square metres.
Let’s start by reminding
ourselves of the length conversion that one metre is equal to 100
centimetres. If we took a square of one
metre by one metre, the area can be found by multiplying the length by the width
to give us one times one, which is one square metre. An equivalent square of 100
centimetres by 100 centimetres will give us an area of 10000 square
centimetres. We can think of this if we
wanted to change from metres to centimetres, we multiply it by 100. And we can use the rule that,
to convert an area, we square the length conversion.
Here, that means if we want to
convert between square metres and square centimetres, we would multiply by 100
squared, which is 10000. And to change from square
centimetres to square metres, we divide by 100 squared. So now, we can say that one
square metre is equal to 10000 square centimetres. So to change 460000 square
centimetres into square metres, we take our value of 460000. And we divide by 100
squared. This is the same as 460000
divided by 10000, which is 46 square metres. So the missing answer in the
question is 46.
