Last Updated : 05 Feb, 2024

To convert your height from centimeters to feet, you need to know the conversion factor. 1 foot is equal to 30.48 centimeters. Therefore, to convert your height of 172 cm to feet, you divide 172 by 30.48.

## Answer: You are approximately 5 feet 7.7 inches tall.

Here’s the calculation:

Height in feet = Height in cm Ã· Conversion factor = 172 Ã· 30.48 â‰ˆ 5.643 feet

However, heights are usually not expressed in decimal feet but rather in feet and inches. There are 12 inches in a foot. To convert the decimal part to inches, you take the fractional part and multiply it by 12.

0.643Ã—12 â‰ˆ 7.716

### So, your height of 172 cm is approximately 5 feet 7.716 inches.

Since we usually round off inches, it can be said that you are about 5 feet 8 inches tall. This conversion is useful in countries where the imperial system is used, and it provides a way to easily communicate height in a format that is widely understood.
