# How many centigrams are in a gram?

**There are 100 centigrams in a gram; in other words, a centigram is equal to one-hundredth of a gram.** The prefix "centi" is derived from the Latin word "centum," which means hundred.

In an attempt to standardize a system of measurement, the first version of the metric system was created by French scientists following the French Revolution.
