    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:)

    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.

    :thankyou:

    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
