## McGraw-Hill My Math Grade 2 Answer Key Chapter 11 Lesson 10 Centimeters and Meters

**Explore and Explain**

______________ centimeters

______________ meters

**Teacher Directions:** Choose a large object from the picture such as a table or window. Find it in your school. Measure the object in centimeters. Measure the object in meters. Discuss the measurements.

Answer:

To measure the length of larger objects such as a table, place your scale on one end of the table and continue measuring till the end of the table.

The length of the table is 200cm.

To convert the centimeters to meters divide the centimeters measurements with 100.

The length of the table in meters is 200Ă·100=2 meters.

**See and Show**

You can use different units of length to measure the same object.

The basketball hoop is about meters tall.

It is about centimeters tall.

Helpful Hint

1 meter = 100 centimeters

Kateâ€™s garden is 9 meters long. Stellaâ€™s garden is 954 centimeters long. Whose garden is longer?

Answer:

Given that:

Kateâ€™s garden is 9 meters long and Stellaâ€™s garden is 954 centimeters long.

Explanation:

As both the given measurements are in different units, first we need to convert them into the same units.

Lets us convert the Kate’s garden units, 9 meters in centimeter. The new conversion measurement will be 9Ă—100=900 centimeters.

As 954 centimeter is greater than 900 centimeter, Stella’s garden is longer.

Question 10.

Briannaâ€™s bedroom is 6 meters wide. Oliverâ€™s bedroom is 596 centimeters wide. Whose bedroom is wider?

Answer:

Given that:

Briannaâ€™s bedroom is 6 meters wide and Oliverâ€™s bedroom is 596 centimeters wide.

Explanation:

As both the given measurements are in different units, first we need to convert them into the same units.

Lets us convert the Briannaâ€™s bedroom units, 6 meters in centimeter. The new conversion measurement will be 6Ă—100=600 centimeters.

As 600 centimeter is greater than 596 centimeter, Briannaâ€™s bedroom is wider.

Question 11.

Gianna walks 10 meters to her mailbox. Parker walks 757 centimeters to his mailbox. Who walks farther?

Answer:

Gianna walks 10 meters to her mailbox and Parker walks 757 centimeters to his mailbox.

Explanation:

As both the given measurements are in different units, first we need to convert them into the same units.

Lets us convert the Gianna’s units, 10 meters in centimeter. The new conversion measurement will be 10Ă—100=1000 centimeters.

As 1000 centimeter is greater than 757 centimeter, Gianna walks farther.

**HOT Problem** Abbyâ€™s ribbon was 5 meters long. She cut off 35 centimeters. How long is the piece of ribbon now? Explain.

Answer:

Given that:

Abbyâ€™s ribbon was 5 meters long. She cut off 35 centimeters.

Explanation:

Let us first convert the 5 meters into centimeter, 5Ă—100=500 centimeters. She cut off 35 centimeters.

To know the left over length of the ribbon we need to subtract the cut off part from that of the total part.

500-35=465 centimeter.

Therefore, the ribbon is 465 centimeter long.
