How to convert cm to feet and inches?

You can easily convert the length in from cm to feet inch by entering the total length in centimeters using the length conversion calculator. The length calculator will take the value you enter and divide it by 1 foot (30.48cm), then the remaining length will be converted into inches (1 inch = 2.54cm).

How many cm in a foot?

Each foot has a length of 30.48 centimeters. We could simply convert cm to feet by dividing the length in cm by 30.48. However, this would give us a decimal result. For example: 100cm / 30.48 = 3.28 feet.

The unit conversion calculator that we created to convert centimeters to feet/inches takes a different approach, to get a more accurate result in both feet and inches.

Measuring tape showing cm to feet and inches

It calculates the length in feet and rounds down to the nearest whole number, then the remaining length in centimeter is converted to inches and both values are returned to the user.

For example: 172cm / 30.48 = 5.643, this is rounded to 5 feet. Then deduct the feet value from the height: 172 - (5 * 30.48) = 19.6cm. Then convert the remainder to inches: 19.6 / 2.54 = 7.716 inches. If we are rounding to 2 decimal places then the final length would be 5 feet and 7.72 inches.
