# How do you convert square cm to inches?

I need to convert 100 sq cm to inches?

Square Centimeters cannot be converted to Inches.

If you want to convert it to square inches, instead of learning the conversion factor, just remember that 1 inch = 2.54 cm.

Hence 100 square cm = 100 / (2.54*2.54) square inches. = 15.5 square inches. The is the answer.

• I believe you mean square inches? You can either calculate, or google the conversion

1 inch = 0.3937 cm

1 in² = 0.1550cm²

So to convert 100 sq cm to sq in, multiply by 0.1550 cm².

100 cm² x 0.1550 in² / 1 cm²

= 15.5 in²

Or you can simply divide the number of square centimeters by 2.54²

100 cm² x 1 in² / 2.54 cm² = 100 / 6.4516 = 15.5 in²

• 1 inch = 2.54 cm so...

100 cm^2 *(1 inch/2.54cm)*(1 inch / 2.54 cm) need to multiply twice to convert to inches^2, just look at the units to see how they cancel out....

= 15.5 in^2

(you can't convert cm^2 to just inches, cm^2 is an area)

• 1 Sq cm = (1/6.4516) inches = 0.155 inches

100 Sq cm = 0.155 * 100 = 15.5 inches

the exact conversion is 1 inch = 2.54 cm

which means 1 cm = 1/2.54 inches

which means 1cm * 1cm = 1/2.54 inches * 1/2.54 inches

so 1 cm^2 = (2.54)^(-2) inch ^2

100 cm^2 = 100 /(2.54)^2 = 15.5 inch ^2

all the best

• Multiply by 0.155

100 x 0.155 = 15.5 inches²
