CM

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for CAMEROON.

CM

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Republic of Cameroon. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Cameroonian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Cameroon. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Cameroon. Each region has its own code with the prefix "CM." For example, the code for the Central Region is ISO 3166-2:CM-CE.

For example, Benjamin and Matt were trying to construct a rectangle with an area equal to their heart's area of 29 square centimeters. They had seen their classmates construct 6-centimeter-by-5-centimeter rectangles to get an area of 30 square centimeters and 4-centimeter-by-7-centimeter rectangles to get an area of 23 square centimeters, but they still were having difficulties.
The yield for these dual catalyst nanotubes was 163 parts per million hydrocarbons an hour for each square centimeter.
