#1
every 2cm equals a meter
1meter=100cm
100m%2cm=50cm
so it would be 4.5x50=225cm
225cm equals 2.25meters
The hieght of the brick wall is 2.25meters

#2
or you could go 4.5%2=2.25
2.25x100=225cm
225cm=2.25meters
The brick wall is 2.25 meters tall.

Obviously DIon didn't read the question properly!
