Um, considering the units on both sides, you switch from length to area.
(1m)^2 = (100cm)^2 = 10000cm^2, this is not the same as 10000cm.

1 = 100 x 0.01
1^2 = 100^2 x 0.01
1 = 10000 x 0.01
1 = 100

why am i not impressed... *sigh*

Let's prove that 1=100

1. 1 m = 100 cm
2. (1)^2 m = (100)^2 cm
3. 1 m = 10000 cm
4. 1 m = 100 m

Cool! Isn't it?
