Q:
# 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. Similar ideas of a system based on the power of 10 had been around for decades prior, but France was the first country to formally adopt it as an official system. It has gone through several revisions, especially since 1960 when the International Committee on Weights and Measures adopted a version called the System of International Units.
