# How to Convert 160 Centimeters to Feet and Inches

Save

Converting between different units is quite simple if you use short formulas called conversion factors. These formulas show how much of one unit equals how much of another unit. In order to convert 160 cm to feet and inches, the conversion factors you need are 2.54 cm = 1 inch and 12 inches = 1 foot.

• Divide 160 by 2.54. This gives you the number of inches. 160 divided by 2.54 is 63 inches.

• Divide 63 inches by 12, the number of inches in a foot, to get 5.25 feet. The fraction form would be 5 1/4 feet, and the full foot/inch reading would be 5 feet 3 inches.

• Multiply 2.54 by 12 as an alternate procedure. If there are 2.54 cm in an inch, and 12 inches in a foot, multiplying 2.54 by 12 should give you the total number of centimeters in a foot, which is 30.48. Divide 160 cm by 30.48 cm to convert the number to feet, in this case 5.249, rounded to 5.25.
