To convert 68 centimeters into meters we have to multiply 68 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

68 cm → L(m)

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

L(m) = 68 cm × 0.01 m

L(m) = 0.68 m

The final result is:

68 cm → 0.68 m

We conclude that 68 centimeters is equivalent to 0.68 meters:

68 centimeters = 0.68 meters
