## How to convert from centimeters to inches?

We can convert from centimeters to inches by dividing the distance in centimeters by 2.54. Therefore, if we have a distance *d* in centimeters (cm), we divide it by 2.54 to get the inches.

d_{(in)} = d_{(cm)}/2.54 |

#### Example 1:

How many inches equals 20 centimeters?

We can find the number of inches by dividing the centimeters by 2.54:

*d*_{(in)} = 20/2.54

*d*_{(in)} = 7.874016 in

#### Example 2:

Find the equivalent of 650 centimeters in inches.

We find the number of inches by dividing the centimeters by 2.54:

*d*_{(in)} = 650/2.54

*d*_{(in)} = 255.905512 in

#### Example 3:

Convert 2 centimeters to inches.

If we divide the centimeters by 2.54, we have:

*d*_{(in)} = 2/2.54

*d*_{(in)} = 0.787402 in
