To convert 520 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 520 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

520 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 520 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 5.2 m

The final result is:

520 cm → 5.2 m

We conclude that 520 centimeters is equivalent to 5.2 meters:

520 centimeters = 5.2 meters
