## How To Convert Your Height To Meters

### Converting Your Height Using Both Feet And Inches

To convert your height from feet and inches to meters, you would take your height in feet, convert it to inches, and add the remaining inches. Then multiply by 0.0254

For example, if you are 5 feet 8 inches in height, you would first multiply 5 feet by 12 (inches).  This equals 60 inches.  You would then add the remaining 8 inches.

5 feet 6 inches = (5 (ft) * 12 (in) =  60 (in)) + 8 (in) = 68 inches.

You would then multiply the result by 0.0254.  68 * 0.0254 = 1.7272 centimeters.

### Converting Your Height Using Only Feet

If you only need to convert your height in feet to meters, you would multiply your height times 3.2808.
