 # How to Convert Inches to Feet: Conversion Formulas Explained!

## Overview:

This guide provides formulas for seamlessly converting measurements such as inches, feet, centimeters, and meters, essential for developers and mathematicians interacting with international audiences.

### Converting Between Metric and Imperial Measurements

When developing applications for both US and European audiences, it’s common to convert measurements from centimeters/meters to feet and inches. Let’s explore how.

### Centimeters/Meters to Inches

For a basic conversion from centimeters to inches, you’d divide the input by 2.54:

```				```
Value(inputValue.Text)/2.54
```
```

#### Given that there's 100 cm in a meter, converting meters to inches involves dividing by 0.0254:

```				```
Value(inputValue.Text)/0.0254
```
```

### Inches to Centimeters/Meters

Converting inches to centimeters requires multiplying the input by 2.54:

```				```
Value(inputValue.Text) * 2.54
```
```

For inches to meters, multiply by 0.0254:

```				```
Value(inputValue.Text) * 0.0254
```
```

### Meters to Feet

When converting meters to feet, multiply by 3.2808:

```				```
Value(inputValue.Text) * 3.2808
```
```

### Feet to Meters

For the inverse, divide feet by 3.2808 to get meters:

```				```
Value(inputValue.Text)/3.2808
```
```

### Converting to "Feet and Inches" Format

It’s often desired to represent height in the format of feet and inches (e.g., 5′ 10″). Here’s how:

```				```
With({value:Value(inputValue.Text)}, Int(value/12)&"' " & Mod(value,12) & """" )
```
```

To represent centimeters in this format:

```				```
With({value:(Value(inputValue.Text)/2.54)}, Int(value/12)&"' " & Mod(value,12) & """" )
```
```

## "Feet and Inches" to Inches

Given a format like 5′ 10″, we can convert this to inches:

```				```
With({ ftValue: Match(First(Split(inputValue.Text,"'")).Result, "[0-9]+" ).FullMatch, inchValue: Match(Last(Split(inputValue.Text,"'")).Result, "[0-9]+" ).FullMatch }, (ftValue * 12) + inchValue )
```
```

For meters:

```				```
With({ ftValue: Match(First(Split(inputValue.Text,"'")).Result, "[0-9]+" ).FullMatch, inchValue: Match(Last(Split(inputValue.Text,"'")).Result, "[0-9]+" ).FullMatch }, 0.0254 * ((ftValue * 12) + inchValue) )
```
```
