Wrong height in my information


Silver Member
Hi, by now I figured out almost everything to find my way around this forum and do stuff, but one thing :). I am 178 cm, and that translates to about 70 inces, or 5.8 feet when I look it up. I type in 70 inces in my personal information, and it shows up as:
Height: 5' 10"

Anyone know what's wrong? I am using online calculators since I am not used to counting in inches, but many say the same.

Not a "end of the world problem", but I am curious :).

Ok! Thanks for your reply! Ok, I might gotten everything in the calculation wrong then :D. Google said that
178 centimeters = 5.83989501 feet

178 cm in feet - Google-sökning

but that might not mean 5'8" or how you write it (just realised that now:eek:)


needs a real kick in the
online calculators seem to have difficulties, if you try 5ft it will say 60 in then ad your 8 which will make 68.
but to do it yourself its 5x12 =60 +8 =68.
thats the easiest way.
i asked my partner hes the one with the brains in our house lol xxx

Thanks a lot to you both! Then I learned something new today as well :). Anyway, the conclusion is that I am 70 inches, and it shows right in my information.

The google calculation is right but that's not an inch and foot measurement but just a foot measurement.

5.8 feet equals 5 feet + .8 foot

.83989501 feet in inches in google returns 10.0787401 inches

so you are 5 foot & 10 inches
