## How to convert from meters to hectometers?

To convert a distance or length from meters or m to hectometers or hm, follow the simple steps below:

- Write down the length value in
**meters (m)**. **Multiply**it by the value of a meter-to-hectometer conversion factor:**0.01**.- The result from multiplication is the value of a length or distance in
**hectometers**or**hm**.

## Meters to hectometers formula

Here is the equation to find the length or distance in hectometers (hm) when knowing the **n-meters** (m): **n** (m) = **n × 0.01** (hm).

Fraction formula for converting from meters to hm:

Decimal formula:

Scientific notion formula:

Or remember the conversion factor: **1 m = 0.01 hm**.

## Examples

How to convert 374 meters to hectometers?

Write down 374 meters and multiply it by the meter-to-hectometer conversion factor: 0.01 or 10^{2} to get hectometers:

So 374 meters is equal to 3.74 hectometers or **3.74 hm**.

How to convert 1600 meters to hectometers?

Write down 1600 meters and divide it by 100 to get hectometers:

So 1,600 meters is equal to 16 hectometers or **16 hm**.

Alternatively, you can use our calculator by entering 1600 into the meter box, and you instantly get the length in hectometers, in this case, 16 hm.
