A  person is 6 feet 4 inches tall; how many cm tall are they?  2.54 cm = 1 in. Report your answer with no decimal places


Expert Answer

Step 1

The conversion factor for feet and inches is:

1 feet = 12 inches


Hence, 6 feet =12 X 6 inches

                      =72 inches


The height of a person in inches units is (72 + 4) inches = 76 inches.

Step 2

The conversion factor for cm and inches is:

1 inches = 2.54 cm


Hence, 76 inches = 76 X 2.54 cm
