To convert inches into meters, just remember one simple ruel: 1 inch = 0.0254 meters Your height is 5 feet and ten inches. As one foot = 12 inches 5 feet = 12 ×5 = 60 inches Total height in inches = 60 + 10 = 70 inches To convert these inches into feet, do the following: 70 × 0.0254 = 1.778 meters

I had written; "There are 39.34 inches in a Meter.

5.10 feet = 61.20 inches

61.20 inches / 39.34 inches/Meter = 1.56 Meters (1.5556685 if you ignore the rules regarding how many decimal places you are using)"

Very sorry for the mis-information. I noticed someone had down-graded my rating. For some reason, I have had 39.34 inches per Meter in my mind for years. Looking at answers to a similar question, I read 39.37 and that is actually the correct number.

So, 61.20 inches is still 1.56 Meters (on the shy side.... 1.5544831, ignoring that rule about significant digits)
