## 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.

**5** feet * **3.2808** = **1.524 **meters
