## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from centimeters to meters is 0.01, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 0.01 meters:

1 cm = 0.01 m

To convert 120.5 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 120.5 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 0.01 m

120.5 cm → L(m)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in meters:

L(m) = 120.5 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 1.205 m

The final result is:

120.5 cm → 1.205 m

We conclude that 120.5 centimeters is equivalent to 1.205 meters:

120.5 centimeters = 1.205 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 0.8298755186722 × 120.5 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 120.5 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.8298755186722 meters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred twenty point five centimeters is approximately one point two zero five meters:

120.5 cm ≅ 1.205 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero point eight three times one hundred twenty point five centimeters.
