5 cm into inches

To convert 5 cm to inches, follow these steps:
1. Understand the conversion factor: 1 inch is equal to 2.54 cm. This means that to convert from centimeters to inches, we need to multiply the centimeter value by 2.54.
2. Set up the conversion equation: Let x be the length in inches. The conversion equation for 5 cm is: 5 cm x (1 inch/2.54 cm) = x inches.
3. Simplify the equation: 5 cm x (1/2.54) = x inches. To simplify, divide 5 by 2.54, which gives us 1.968503937 inches.
4. Round off the result: Since we are dealing with length, we can round off the result to the nearest hundredth place. So, our final answer is approximately 1.97 inches.
5. Check your answer: To double-check your answer, you can use the reverse conversion method. If we convert 1.97 inches back to centimeters, we should get 5 cm. And indeed, 1.97 inches x (2.54 cm/1 inch) = approximately 5 cm.
6. Write the final conversion: Therefore, 5 cm is equivalent to approximately 1.97 inches.
