### Why We Used 10000000 During Centimeter Based Knit Fabric Consumption Calculation?

When I was a trainee merchandiser, I faced this type of problem that, why we will use 10000000 during centimeter-based knit fabric consumption calculation in the clothing industry. Not just me, there are so many, who still don’t know the correct explanation of that.

Knit Fabric Consumption Calculation

The explanation for the problem that “why we will use 10000000 during centimeter based knit fabric consumption calculation” is in the following:

We know,

The basic formula for centimeter based knit fabric consumption calculation is-
= (Body length + sleeve length+ Allowance) cm × (Chest width + Allowance) cm × 2 × GSM .… (1)

At first, we have to think that, as we have needed the fabric consumption quantity in kg unit and the fabric GSM (Grams per square meter) is in a square meter, so we have to convert all the lengths (Body length, Sleeve length, and Chest width) into the square meter. As a result, we will divide both of the parts (Body length+ Sleeve length) and Chest width by 100 for each (we know, 1m= 100cm).

Now, the above formula (1) will show as the following-
Now, after converting, it’s seen that all the units are in gram per square meter.
So, here dividing the formula (2) by 1000, we can easily get the fabric quantity in kg unit (we know, 1kg = 1000gm)

So, the above formula (2) will show as the following-
So, it’s the explanation that why we will use 10000000 during centimeter based knit fabric consumption calculation.
