Definitions:

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.

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.


How to Convert Feet to Centimeters

Example: How many centimeters are equivalent to 42.35 feet?


As;

1 feet = 30.48 centimeters

42.35 feet = Y centimeters

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

Y equals 42.35 times 30.48 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 42.35 * 30.48 / 1 = 1290.828 centimeters

Answer is: 1290.828 centimeters are equivalent to 42.35 feet.
