To convert 124 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 124 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

124 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 124 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 1.24 m

The final result is:

124 cm → 1.24 m

We conclude that 124 centimeters is equivalent to 1.24 meters:

124 centimeters = 1.24 meters
