## How to Convert Feet to Centimeters

*Example: How many centimeters are equivalent to 39.71 feet?*

As;

1 feet = 30.48 centimeters

39.71 feet = Y centimeters

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

Y equals 39.71 times 30.48 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 39.71 * 30.48 / 1 = 1210.3608 centimeters

Answer is: 1210.3608 centimeters are equivalent to 39.71 feet.
