# How many square centimeters are there in a square meter?

Centimeters and meters are the measuring units used to measure lengths and distances. Square centimeters and square meters are used to measure area.

## Answer: 10000 square centimeters are there in a square meter.

Let's look into the relation between square centimeters and square meters.

**Explanation:**

We know that,

1 m = 100 cm

1m × 1m = 100 cm × 100 cm

⇒ 1m^{2} = 10000 cm^{2}

Thus,

1 square meter = 10000 square centimeters

### Hence, 10000 square centimeters are there in a square meter.
