Answer

Less 18 cm or 0.18 m

Convert 82 cm to m. From cm to m is two places to the left on the conversion line, so move the decimal point two places to the left also. 82. cm = 0.82 m 0 .82 m is less than 1 m, so 82 cm is less than 1 m. The difference in length is 1 m - 0.82 m = 0.18 m or 100 cm - 82 cm = 18 cm
