1.78m

• The only distance converter I memorize is 1 in = 2.54 cm exactly.

60+10 = 70 inches

70 in (2.54 cm/in) (1 m/100cm) = 1.764 m exactly

• 5' 10" = 70" = 177.8 cm = 1.778 m

• It is: (70*2.54)/100 = 1.778 meters

• The conversion factor is 1inch = 2.54 cm

5ft 10 in = 5(12) + 10 = 70 inches

70 x 2.54 = 177.8 cm

Divide by '100' to convert cm to metres (m)

Hence

177.8 cm = 1.778 m

It follows

5 ft 10 ins = 1.778 m

• There are many sites that will do conversions for you. However, using common equivalencies you need to be able to convert from imperial to metric.

12 inches = 1 foot so,

5 feet 10 inches is (5 x 12) + 10 = 70 inches

Now, 1 inch = 2.54 cm

i.e. 70 x 2.54 = 177.8 cm

As we know that 100 cm = 1 metre we have:

177.8 cm = 1.778 metres

or, 1.78 metres

• That's 5*12 + 10 = 60 + 10 = 70 inches

Multiply by 2.54 to get 177.8 cm

Divide by 100 to get exactly 1.778 metres
