To convert 15 centimeters to meters, you can use the conversion factor that 1 meter equals 100 centimeters. The formula to convert centimeters to meters is:
\([ \text{meters} = \frac{\text{centimeters}}{100} ]\)
Applying this formula to 15 centimeters:
\([ \text{meters} = \frac{15}{100} = 0.15 \text{ meters} ]\)
The calculation above is based on the basic conversion rate between centimeters and meters. Since a meter is defined as the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI) and is 100 times larger than a centimeter, dividing centimeters by 100 gives you their equivalent value in meters. This conversion is essential in physics and engineering applications, enabling consistency and standardization in measurements. In this particular calculation, by dividing 15 centimeters by 100, we arrive at 0.15 meters, indicating that 15 centimeters is equivalent to 15 hundredths of a meter.
