On the other hand, centimeters are units of distance in the metric system. We use the abbreviation cm to represent centimeters.

## How to convert centimeters to feet+inches?

We can convert centimeters to feet+inches by finding the number of inches and then converting to feet. Therefore, we start by dividing centimeters by 2.54.

Then we can divide the number of inches by 12 to find the feet. We only take the whole number without decimals.

Lastly, we multiply the whole number of feet by 12 and subtract from the number of inches. The result is the number of inches remaining.

#### Example 1:

Find the equivalence in feet + inches of 100 cm.

We start by finding the number of inches by dividing by 2.54.

d(in) = 100/2.54

d(in) = 39.370079 in

Now, we find the number of feet by dividing by 12:

d(ft) = 39.370079/12

d(ft) = 3.28084 ft

The whole number of feet is 3.

Multiplying the number of feet (3) by 12 and subtracting from the inches, we have:

d(in) = 39.370079 – 3(12)

d(in) = 3.370079 in

Therefore, 100 centimeters is equal to 3 ft + 3.370079 in.

#### Example 2:

Determine how many feet + inches are equal to 250 cm.

Dividing by 2.54, we get the inches:

d(in) = 250/2.54

d(in) = 98.425197 in

Dividing by 12, we get the number of feet:

d(ft) = 98.425197/12

d(ft) = 8.2021 ft

The whole number of feet is 8.

Now, we multiply the number of feet (8) by 12 and subtract from the number of inches:

d(in) = 98.425197 – 8(12)

d(in) = 2.425197 in

Therefore, 250 centimeters is equal to 8 ft + 2.425197 in.
