According to the CSG Network, 1 centimeter equals 0.39 inches, meaning that there are exactly 2.56 centimeters in an inch. An easy method of conversion is simply using multiplication.
For instance, designate each centimeter to 0.39 inches, and multiply it by the number of centimeters to get an answer in inches. Alternatively, designate a centimeter to 0.03 feet to get the answer in feet instead of inches. If a conversion is needed in both feet and inches, the best method is to first convert to inches, and then convert inches into feet by dividing inches by 12. The remainder is in inches.
1 inch=2.54cm. 1cm = 1/2.54 inches = 0.3937 inches (approx 2/5 or 0.4 of an inch) One inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters. Take the inverse and you have.3937 inches. to the centimeter
