There are 100cm in a meter. So, 1 square meter would be 1m x 1m = 100cm x 100cm = 10000cm^{2}

So, 5 square meters would be 5 times as much = 50,000cm^{2}

[ To see this more clearly, imagine a suare with a side of √5m. Then the area would be 5m^{2}. So, in cm, the side would be 100√5 cm. And (100√5 cm)^{2} = 50,000cm^{2} ]

Well there is 100 cm in a metre

so

there is 100^2cm^2 in a m^2

10 000cm^2=1m^2

so

50 000cm^2 in 5m^2

**What is 5 m squared converted to cm squared** ?

$$\boxed{5\ m^2 = 50000\ cm^2}$$

Thanks Heureka,

I never stop being surprised by what the web2.0 calc can do.

Thanks for showing us.

Thanks for that, heureka........there are always things popping up on this calculator that I hadn't been aware of, before......of course......If Melody and I relied on a simple thing like punching a few buttons on the calculator, we wouldn't be able to "show off" as much as we do.....!!!
