# What is 69 inches in height?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking for the conversion of a height measurement from inches to another unit of measurement (likely centimeters or feet).

To convert inches to centimeters: height in cm = height in inches x 2.54.

The answer will depend on the height measurement provided in inches. For example, if the height is 10 inches, the calculation would be:

$$\text{Height in cm} = 10 \text{ inches} \times 2.54 \text{ cm/inch} = 25.4 \text{ cm}$$

The result would be ( 25.4 \text{ cm} ).

#### Steps to Solve

1. Identify the conversion factors

Before we can convert inches to the desired unit, we need to know the conversion factors.

• To convert inches to centimeters, use the factor: $$1 \text{ inch} = 2.54 \text{ centimeters}$$

• To convert inches to feet, use the factor: $$1 \text{ foot} = 12 \text{ inches}$$

1. Choose the target unit

Determine whether you want to convert the height from inches to centimeters or feet. For this explanation, let’s assume converting to centimeters.

1. Apply the conversion factor

Take the height measurement in inches and multiply it by the conversion factor to convert to centimeters. Assuming the height given is ( h ) inches:

$$\text{Height in cm} = h \text{ inches} \times 2.54 \text{ cm/inch}$$

1. Calculate the result

Insert the height value for ( h ) from the problem into the equation and perform the multiplication to find the equivalent height in centimeters.

Double-check the calculation to ensure accuracy, confirming that the conversion was done correctly.

The answer will depend on the height measurement provided in inches. For example, if the height is 10 inches, the calculation would be:

$$\text{Height in cm} = 10 \text{ inches} \times 2.54 \text{ cm/inch} = 25.4 \text{ cm}$$

The result would be ( 25.4 \text{ cm} ).

Using conversion factors is a fundamental skill in measurements, especially in scientific contexts. Knowing that 1 inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters helps in making accurate conversions between these two units.

#### Tips

• Failing to use the correct conversion factor. Always check which unit you are converting to and from.
• Accidentally switching the conversion direction, i.e., converting centimeters to inches instead of the intended inches to centimeters.
• Forgetting to multiply the given height by the conversion factor.
