Height conversion formula

We use the following conversion identities to convert height between metric and imperial units:
1 meter = 100 centimeters
1 foot = 12 inches
1 meter = 3.28084 feet

Or,
1 ft = (1/3.28084) m = 0.3048 m
1 in = (0.3048*100/12) cm = 2.54 cm

Sample conversions

What is 5′7″ height in cm?

Ans. 5′7″ = (5*12 + 7)″ = 67″ = (67*2.54) cm = 170 cm

Convert 190 cm to ft-in?

Ans. 190 cm = (190/100)*3.28084 ft = 6.233596 ft = 6 ft + 0.233596 ft = 6 ft + (.233596*12) in = 6 ft 2.8 in
