## Formula for Height Conversion (cm to feet inch and feet inch to cm)

### How To Convert Feet and Inches to Centimeter and Meter

Multiply Feet Value by 12 and add the inches to it. Multiply by 2.54 to convert inches to centimeter

1 cm = (ft * 12 + inch) * 2.54

Since 1 meter is 100 cms, divide the result by 100 to get in meters

1 m = (ft * 12 + inch) * 2.54 / 100

For example, to convert 5 feet 10 inches to cm and m, you would use the following formula:

cm = (5 * 12 + 10) * 2.54 = 178 cm

meters = (5 * 12 + 10) * 2.54/100 = 1.78 meters

### How to Convert Meter or Centimeter to Feet and Inches

First convert centimeter to feet by dividing centimeter by 30.48

feet value = cm/30.48 = m * 100/30.48

Then Multiply decimal part by 12 to get the inches value. 1 feet = 12 inches

inch value = decimal part of cm/30.48 * 12;

For example, to convert 196 cms to feet and inches,

Convert height to feet = 196 / 30.48 = 6.43 feet

6 feet + convert 0.43 feet to inches = 6 feet + (0.43 * 12) 5.1 inches

so 196 cm = 6 feet 5.1 inches.

Consider another example where height is 1.65 meters

Multiply by 100 for the cm value and then to feet = 1.65 * 100 / 30.48 = 5.41 feet

5 feet + convert 0.41 feet to inches = (0.41 * 12) = 4.9 inches

1.65 m = 165 cm = 5 feet 5 inches

## Steps to Convert Feet and Inches to Centimeters using our Tool

- This tool can be used to convert Feet and Inch to Centimeter and vice-versa. It can be used for height conversion or any other purpose.
- To find cm, enter the feet value in the field labelled as 'Feet' and inch value in the field labelled as 'Inch'
- You will get the Centimeter and Meter value updated automatically in their respective fields in the output
- You can also add the feet value in decimals without inch like 6.5 feet and leave inches empty. 6.5 feet is same as 6 feet and 6 inches
- If you dont' have the feet value but only in inches, then you can enter the inches value like 76 inches leaving the feet value empty and view the output in cm and m
- Using the same tool, you can do the reverse calculation seamlessly.
- Enter the centimeter value in the field marked as 'Centimeter' or meter value in the field marked as 'Meter' and you will get the feet + inches value instantly
- This tool supports ft-inch-cm-m 4 way conversion seamlessly. It gives instant results, easy to use and free.

## Units of Height Measurement

- The metric system uses centimeters and meters. Meter is the international standard unit for measuring length and height.
- The imperial system of measurement uses feet and inches, is still used in many countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Height in ft and inches is also used in countries that follow metric system.
- There are 2.54 centimeters in one inch, and 12 inches in one foot and 3.28 feet in a meter
- There are 2.54 centimeters in one inch, and 12 inches in one foot.
- To convert from feet and inches to centimeters, multiply the feet by 12 and then add the inches.
- To convert from centimeters to feet and inches, divide the centimeters by 2.54 and then round down to the nearest inch.
- There are a few different ways to express height in feet and inches. For example, you can say "5 feet 10 inches" or 5'10" or just 5 10. You can also use a fraction to represent the inches, such as "5 feet 10/12 inches".

## Frequently Asked Questions on Height Conversion

The metric system of unit for height is meter (m) and Centimeter (cm).

Imperial system of measure is with Feet and Inch

Inch is bigger than Centimeter.

Feet is bigger than Centimeter and Inch.

Meter is bigger than Feet.

Convert feet part of the height to inches. 1 feet = 12 inches .

Add the inches part to it. then multiply by 2.54 to get cm. (1 inch = 2.54 cms) .

Consider height as 6 feet 1 in. 6 feet x 12 = 72 inches .

Total height in inches = 72 + 1 = 73 inches .

Height in cm = 73 x 2.54 = 185.42 cm .

Convert centimeter to inches by dividing by 2.54. Divide by 12 to get the feet value.

The whole part or integral part is the feet part.

Multiply decimal by 12 to get the inch part.

Let's consider height is 177.8 cms.

Height in inches = 117.8/2.54 = 70 inches.

Divide by 12 (to get the feet part) = 70/12 = 5.833 feet. (5 feet + 0.833 ft).

Multiply 0.833 part by 12 to get the inch = 0.833 * 12 = 10 inches.

Height in feet/inch = 5 feet 10 inches (5"10').
