## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from centimeters to meters is 0.01, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 0.01 meters:

1 cm = 0.01 m

To convert 0.4 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 0.4 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 0.01 m

0.4 cm → L_{(m)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length *L* in meters:

L_{(m)} = 0.4 cm × 0.01 m

L_{(m)} = 0.004 m

The final result is:

0.4 cm → 0.004 m

We conclude that **0.4 centimeters is equivalent to 0.004 meters**:

0.4 centimeters = 0.004 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 250 × 0.4 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *0.4 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 250 meters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **zero point four centimeters is approximately zero point zero zero four meters**:

0.4 cm ≅ 0.004 m

An alternative is also that *one meter is approximately two hundred fifty times zero point four centimeters*.
