Centimeter (abbreviation: cm): is a unit of length in the SI metric system, equal to one hundredth of a metre, centi being the prefix for a factor of 1/100. The centimetre was the base unit of length in the now deprecated centimetre–gram–second (CGS) system of units.

Foot (abbreviation: ft): (plural feet) is a unit of length in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. Since 1959, both units have been accepted equivalent to exactly 0.3048 meters by international agreement.

How to Convert Centimeters to Feet

Example: How many feet are equivalent to 28.1 centimeters?


1 centimeters = 0.032808 feet

28.1 centimeters = Y feet

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 28.1 times 0.032808 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 28.1 * 0.032808 / 1 = 0.9219048 feet

Answer is: 0.9219048 feet are equivalent to 28.1 centimeters.
