    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
