## 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 180 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 180 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

180 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 180 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 1.8 m

The final result is:

180 cm → 1.8 m

We conclude that 180 centimeters is equivalent to 1.8 meters:

180 centimeters = 1.8 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 meter is equal to 0.55555555555556 × 180 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 180 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.55555555555556 meters.

## Approximate result

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

180 cm ≅ 1.8 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately zero point five five six times one hundred eighty centimeters.
