    It is 175.26 cm.

    By definition, 1 inch = 2.54 cm

    Taking 5.9" to be 5 feet 9 inches, or 69 inches, you would multiply this by 2.54

    and get 175.26. So I'd say 175 cm is the better answer.

    maybe you're not using good enough measurements. or they are too rounded up for such a big difference margin.

    >>>>>Using calculator

    If 1 ft = 30.48 cm

    then 30.48 * 5.9 = 179.832

    >>>>>Using the converter

    http://www.convertunits.com/from/feet/to/cm

    5.9 ft = 179.83200000000002cm

    EDIT

    first of all, are you talking about 5 feet 9 inches? or 5.9 feet? they are not the same thing and that is where lies the difference between the two answers. if you assume 5.9" is 5 feet 9 inches (which would be 69 inches total ) then the answer would be around 175 cm, if you asume 5.9" is 5.9 feet (which would be 70.8 inches total) then the answer would be around 180 cm.

    Best method is to study yoga and practice non-attachment to height of 180 cm. Actually Yoga might help lengthen the spine - try iyengar style. BKS Iyengar teaches in Pune. Or just buy shoes with a 5 cm heel.

    It's 175cm. Something is wrong with that converter or unit.
