## Formulae

cm  x  0.39* = in

 in = ft 12

in  x  2.54 = cm

## Examples

If a woman is 5 foot, 3 inches (5' 3"), what is her height in centimeters?

 (5' x 12) + 3" = 63" 63" x 2.54 = 160 cm

If a woman is 5 foot, 8 inches (5' 8"), what is her height in centimeters?

(5' x 12) + 8" = 68"

68" x 2.54 = 172.7 cm

If a man is 203.2 centimeters tall, what is his height in feet and inches?

203.2 cm x 0.3937008 = 80"

 80 = 6.67' 12

.67 x 12 = 8.04 remainder

 80 = 6 ft and remainder = 8 in 12
