Centimeters to Feet+Inches Conversion
Easily convert centimeters to feet and inches using our online converter tool. Get accurate and instant results for your length conversions. Centimeters (cm) are a metric unit of length, commonly used worldwide, while feet (ft) and inches (in) are imperial units primarily used in the United States and a few other countries.
what is Centimeters to Feet+Inches Conversion
To convert centimeters (cm) to feet and inches, you can use the following conversion factors:
1 foot = 30.48 centimeters 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters
First, divide the number of centimeters by 2.54 to find the equivalent length in inches. Then, divide the number of inches by 12 to obtain the corresponding number of feet.
For example, let's convert 170 centimeters to feet and inches:

Convert centimeters to inches: Inches = 170 cm / 2.54 = 66.9291 inches

Convert inches to feet: Feet = 66.9291 inches / 12 ≈ 5.5774 feet
Since there are 12 inches in a foot, we have 5 feet and a remainder of 0.5774 feet. To express this as inches, multiply the decimal part by 12:
Inches = 0.5774 feet * 12 = 6.9288 inches
So, 170 centimeters is approximately equal to 5 feet and 6.9 inches.
How to convert centimeters to feet+inches
1 centimeter is equal to 0.032808 feet:
1 cm = 0.032808 ft
1 centimeter is equal to 0.3937 inches:
1 cm = 0.3937 in
The total distance d in inches (in) is equal to the distance d in centimeters (cm) divided by 2.54:
d_{(in) total} = d_{(cm)} / 2.54
The distance d in feet (ft) is equal to the floor value of the distance d in inches (in) divided by 12:
d_{(ft)} = ⌊d_{(in) total} / 12⌋
The distance d in inches (in) is equal to the total distance d in inches (in) minus 12 times the distance d in feet (ft):
d_{(in)} = d_{(in) total}  12 × d_{(ft)}
Example
Convert 40 centimeters to feet+inches:
d_{(in) total} = 40cm / 2.54 = 15.748in
d_{(ft)} = ⌊15.748in / 12⌋ = 1ft
d_{(in)} = 15.748in  12 × 1ft = 3.748in
d_{(ft+in)} = 1ft + 3.748in
