Converting 5’8″ to Centimeters

|

Height conversions can often leave us scratching our heads, especially when dealing with two different units of measurement.

In our last blog, we explained how to convert a height of 5’4″ to the metric system. In this blog, we will focus on how a height of 5’8″ translates to the metric system.

This guide is designed to make the conversion from feet and inches to centimeters as simple as possible. Let’s get started!

Converting 5’8″ to Centimeters: A Step-by-Step Guide

When converting a height from feet and inches to centimeters, it’s crucial to know the conversion factors. Here they are for quick reference:

• 1 foot = 12 inches
• 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters

Now, let’s break down the process of converting 5’8″ into centimeters:

Step 1: Convert Feet to Inches

First, we’ll start by converting the feet to inches. In this case, the height is 5 feet.

5 feet=5×12=60 inches

Step 2: Add the Remaining Inches

The next step is adding any remaining inches to the calculated total. The height we are working with is 5’8″, so we add 8 inches to the 60 inches from the 5 feet:

60 inches (from 5 feet) + 8 inches= 68 inches

Step 3: Convert Total Inches to Centimeters

Finally, it’s time to convert the total inches to centimeters using the conversion factor for inches to centimeters.

68 inches×2.54 cm/inch=172.72 cm

Summary

So, to convert 5’8″ to centimeters, you start by converting the feet to inches:

• 5 feet=60 inches.
• Add the remaining 8 inches for a total of 68 inches.
• Multiply the total inches (68) by 2.54 (the conversion factor for inches to centimeters), and you get approximately 172.72cm.

In other words, a height of 5’8″ is roughly equivalent to 172.72 centimeters.
