How to Convert Inches to Meters

Example: How many meters are equivalent to 71.33 inches?


As;

1 inches = 0.0254 meters

71.33 inches = Y meters

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

Y equals 71.33 times 0.0254 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 71.33 * 0.0254 / 1 = 1.811782 meters

Answer is: 1.811782 meters are equivalent to 71.33 inches.
