To convert 120 cm to inches, the calculation involves a simple mathematical equation. One inch is equivalent to 2.54 centimeters (cm). Consequently, to find the equivalent number of inches for any given centimeters, you divide the number of centimeters by 2.54. In the case of converting 120 cm to inches, the equation would be 120 cm / 2.54 cm/inch.
