How to Convert Inches to Meters

Example: How many meters are equivalent to 80.42 inches?


As;

1 inches = 0.0254 meters

80.42 inches = Y meters

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

Y equals 80.42 times 0.0254 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 80.42 * 0.0254 / 1 = 2.042668 meters

Answer is: 2.042668 meters are equivalent to 80.42 inches.
