# How Many Centimetres in an Inch

In mathematics, an inch is a unit of measurement for length. “In” or “inches” is the standard notation for an inch. An inch is referred to as a unit of length in the British Measurement norms unit system zone. The US and its territories are likewise organized in this way. Although the inch is widely used as a length measurement unit, it is not the SI Unit. It is recognized as being equivalent to the 1/12 foot and 1/36 yard units. Since the SI unit of measurement for length is always a meter, the inch system metric equals 2.54 cm.

## What is Centimetre?

Centimetre or cm is used internationally to represent the length. It denotes the unit for the measurement of length according to the metric system. It is related to the SI unit of meter by factorial of 1/100. “Centi” is the SI prefix used for the measurement of length. It is symbolized as cm which belongs to the ‘CGS’ unit system also known as (Centimetre/gram/second) unit system. A single arch is 2.54 cm. It measures the small length of objects or items. Centimetre is also used to measure the height of a person. According to a Metric system centimetre is defined alongside the millimetres as a factor of 10. Measuring the width of an individual’s fingernail can say the factual measurement centimetre.

The table given below will help to make the conversion from inches to centimetres. Later the multiplication process is used. Check out the table for the conversion of inches to centimetres from digit 1 to 10.

## Calculation of Inches to Centimetre

As we know that Inches and Centimetres are used to measure the length of the object. It is helpful for the calculation of conversion from one unit to other unit without making a change in the amount.  The relation of conversion between the inches and centimetre are given below-

1 Inch=2.54 cm

or 1 cm= 0.393701 inches

### Lets see an example to convert 10 inches to cm

As we know that 1 inch=2.53 cm

To convert 10 inches to cm we will have to multiply 10 with 2.54

10×2.54 = 25.4 centimeters.

So, 10 inches is 25.4 centimeters.

Likewise we can do the conversion with any other number.

#### 1.How many centimetres are equal to 1 inch?

Solution: According to the standard value we have learnt that

1 Inch =2.54 cm

#### 2.How many centimetres are there in 6 inches?

Solution: As given the formula above we can apply it here to change the 6 inch to centimetres. So, according to the steps given above we will convert.

We have learnt that1 inch=2.54 cm

Then 6 Inches=6 × 2.54 cm

=15.24 cm

#### 3.Convert 20 inches into centimetres

Solution:Lets convert 20 inches into centimetres . So according to the formula and steps.

We have learnt that1 inch=2.54 cm

Converting 20 inch would be as follows

20 inch=  20 × 2.54 cm

=50.8 cm

Therefore 20 inches= 50.8 cm

#### 4.Convert 50 inches to centimetres.

Solution: We have learnt that1 inch=2.54 cm

So 50 inch=  50×2.54

=127 centimeter

Therefore 50 inches= 127 cm

#### 5.How to convert centimetres to inches?

We have learnt that1 inch=2.54 cm

So, 1 cm= 1/2.54

= 0.393701 inch
