# How much is 170cm in feet and inches ?

• 1 foot = 30.48 cm

1 inch = 2.54 cm

1 cm = 1/30.48 foot = 1/2.54 inch

170 cm

= 170 cm/30.48 feet

≈ 5.6 feet

0.6 foot

= 0.6 foot * 12 inches

= 7.2 inches

≈ 7 inches

∴ 170 cm ≈ 5 feet and 7 inches

• You need to know some conversion factors to solve this problem:

1. 1 inch = 2.54 cm

2. 1 foot = 12 inches

With this information you can solve the problem. first convert CM to INCHES:

170 cm * (1 inch / 2.54 cm) = 66.9 in

Now divide the inches by inches-per-feet to get an integral value, taking care of the remainder:

66.9 in * (1 foot / 12 inches) = 5 feet plus a fraction

5 feet is really 60 inches. Which leaves 6.9 inches left from 66.9 inches.

Thus, the value is 5 feet 6.9 inches.

If this is a height, we would say a 170 cm tall person is 5 feet 7 inches.
