## 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 140 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 140 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

140 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 140 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 1.4 m

The final result is:

140 cm → 1.4 m

We conclude that 140 centimeters is equivalent to 1.4 meters:

140 centimeters = 1.4 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 0.71428571428571 × 140 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 140 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.71428571428571 meters.
