Inch (abbreviation: in): is a unit of length in the (British) imperial and United States customary systems of measurement now formally equal to 1/36 yard but usually taken as 1/12 of a foot.

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 Inches to Centimeters

Example: How many centimeters are equivalent to 24.81 inches?


1 inches = 2.54 centimeters

Y equals 24.81 times 2.54 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 24.81 * 2.54 / 1 = 63.0174 centimeters

Answer is: 63.0174 centimeters are equivalent to 24.81 inches.
