# C++ Program to Convert Centimeters to Feet and Inches

In this post, we will learn how to convert centimeters to feet and inches using C++ Programming language.

There are 2.54 cm in 1 inch. To convert cm to inches, divide cm figure by 2.54.

There are 12 inches in a foot, so to convert inches to foot, divide inches by 12 to get the length in feet.

We will be using the above metrics in our program to perform the conversion.

So, without further ado, let’s begin this tutorial.

## C++ Program to Convert Centimeters to Feet and Inches

```// C++ Program to Convert Centimeters to Feet and Inches
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main(){
float cm, feet, inches;

// Asking for input
cout << "Enter the length in centimeters: ";
cin >> cm;

// Conversion
inches = cm / 2.54;
feet = inches / 12;

// Displaying output
cout << cm << " cm is equals to: " << inches << " inches" << endl;
cout << cm << " cm is equals to: " << feet << " feet";
return 0;
}
```

Output

``````Enter the length in centimeters: 21
21 cm is equals to: 8.26772 inches
21 cm is equals to: 0.688976 feet
``````

## How Does This Program Work ?

```    float cm, feet, inches;
```

In this program, we have declared three float data type variables named cm, feet and inches.

```    // Asking for input
cout << "Enter the length in centimeters: ";
cin >> cm;
```

Then, the user is asked to enter the length in centimeters.

```    // Conversion
inches = cm / 2.54;
feet = inches / 12;
```

We convert cm to inches by dividing the cm figure by 2.54. [1 inch = 2.54 cm]
We convert the length to feet by dividing the total inches obtained above by 12. [ 1 Foot = 12 inches]

```    // Displaying output
cout << cm << " cm is equals to: " << inches << " inches" << endl;
cout << cm << " cm is equals to: " << feet << " feet";
```

Finally, the output is displayed on the screen using the cout statement.
