0.60 m = 60 cm
0.02 m = 2cm
Answer = 1 meters 62 centimeter
(6) 91.34 m = 91 meter 34 centimeter
(7) 7.02 m = 7 meter 2 centimeter
(8) 0.09 m = 9 centimeter
 Write how many metres in decimal form.
(1) 1 m 50 cm
1 cm = 0.01 meter
50 cm = 0.50 meter
so, 1 m 50 cm = 1.50 meter
(2) 50 m 40 cm
1 cm = 0.01 m
40 cm = 0.40 m
so, 50 m 40 cm = 50.40 m
(3) 50 m 4 cm
1 cm = 0.01 m
4 cm = 0.4 m
so, 50 m 4 cm = 50.4 m
(4) 734 cm
1 cm = 0.01 m
100 cm = 1 m
700 cm = 7 m
30 cm = 0.30 m
4 cm = 0.04 m
so, 734 cm = 7.34 m
(5) 10 cm
1 cm = 0.01 m
10 cm = 0.10 m
so, 10 cm = 0.10 m
(6) 2 cm
1 cm = 0.01 m
So, 2 cm = 0.02 m
5.) Write how many centimetres and how many millimetres.
(1) 6.9 cm
1 centimeter = 10 milimeters
6 cm = 60 mm
0.9 cm = 9 mm
So, 6,9 cm = 6 centimeter 9 milimeter
(2) 20.4 cm
1 centimeter = 10 milimeters
20 cm = 200 mm
0.4 cm = 4mm
So, 20.4 cm = 20 centimeter 4 milimeter
(3) 0.8 cm
1 centimeter = 10 milimeters
So, 0.8 cm = 8 mm
(4) 0.5 cm
1 centimeter = 10 milimeters
0.5 cm = 5 mm
6.) Write how many centimetres in decimal form.
(1) 7 cm 1 mm
1 cm = 10 mm
7 cm = 70 mm
1 mm = 0.1 cm
So, 7 cm 1 mm = 7.1 cm
(2) 16 mm
1 mm = 0.1 cm
10 mm = 1 cm
6 mm = 0.6 cm
16 mm = 1.6 cm
(3) 144 mm
1 mm = 0.1 m
10 mm = 1 cm
100 mm = 10 cm
40 mm = 4 cm
4 mm = 0.4 cm

(4) ten and a half = 10.5
a half = ½
To convert this fraction into decimal form, the denominator of ½ must be converted into an equivalent fraction with denominator 10.
½ = 1×5/2×5 = 5/10 so, the decimal form will be 0.50
So the answer = 10.5
(5) fourteen and three quarters = 14.75
Three quarter = ¾
To convert this fraction into decimal form, the denominator of ¾ must be converted into an equivalent fraction with denominator 100
¾ = 3×25/4×25 = 75/100 so, the decimal form will be 0.75
So the answer 14.75
(6) sixteen and a quarter = 16.25
a quarter = ¼
To convert this fraction into decimal form, the denominator of ¼ must be converted into an equivalent fraction with denominator 100
