3 million cm

1 m = 100 cm
1 m = 100 cm
1 m = 1000000 cm

hmm, there seems to be a large difference between JohnC's result and mine.
I know 1m = 100 cm,
so I know that 3 m = 300 cm.
now, I took 300 cm, and squared it, resulting in 90 000 cm, then multiplied that by 300 cm, resulting in 27 000 000 cm

3 m is NOT 3 m x 3 m x 3 m,
the exponent is only associated with the unit, not the number. It is 3*(1 m)*(1 m)*(1 m)

I'm not sure. an object, such as a rubix cube, that has 3 inches on a side ah, I had worked backwards the wrong way. I was thinking 3 cubic meters, not 3 meters cubed.. or possibly the reverse of that.. I DUNNO

It breaks down like this...

physics is the easiest math you'll ever do because your units will always tell you if you're right:

1m3 x 100cm/m x 100cm/m x 100cm/m

this way your meters cubed cancels out on the bottom and you end up with centimeters cubed on the top.

1000000cm3

cheers mate.

"3 meters cubed" means three cubic meters.

Three separate lots of one cubic meter.

Each cubic meter measures 100cm on each side.

100 x 100 x 100 = 1,000,000 cubic entimetres in each cubic meter.

There are 3 cubic meters so 3,000,000 cubic centimetres in total.
