4.2 Converting square metres into square centimetres

If you imagine a tile which is one square metre, then 100 square centimetre tiles would line up along its edge.

You could fit 100 rows of these hundred square centimetre tiles inside the metre square.

That’s 100 × 100 = 10 000 square centimetres in one square metre (Figure 13).
