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 137 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 137 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

137 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 137 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 1.37 m

The final result is:

137 cm → 1.37 m

We conclude that 137 centimeters is equivalent to 1.37 meters:

137 centimeters = 1.37 meters
