  • height conversion

    How do I convert 5 feet 3 inches? Can it be done directly? Or do I have to first convert the feet, jot down the centimeters, then the inches, and make my addition?
    Thanks to anyone who answers this.

    It's not possible to directly convert mixed measurement units. I don't even know what that would look like.
    Proper solutions are:
    • Convert the feet to inches, and add to the remaining inches and convert into cm.
    • Convert the inches to feet and add to the remaining feet and convert into cm.
    • Or convert the feet to cm, convert the inches to cm, and add the two together

      Thanks. Thought so.
      I'm sure it can be fixed though - if someone puts his mind to it.

        Well, the website "Rapid Tables" does it.

        https://www.rapidtables.com/convert/...nch-to-cm.html

        I suppose Online Conversion could do it as well and offer it somehow to users.

          We have a page for that here:
          https://www.onlineconversion.com/int...al_friends.htm

          It will do basic height, weight, temperature, etc.

              I checked out that site and the code there is doing the first option I provided. It converts feet to inches, then adds the inches, and then converts inches to centimeters.

                چیزهایی که باید بدانید:
                30.48 سانتی متر 1 فوت
                2.54 سانتی متر 1 اینچ
                1 فوت 12 اینچ
                مثلا فرض کنید که می خواهید 5 فوت و 3 اینچ را به سانتی متر درآورید. با توجه به توضیحات بالا، به سادگی از این فرمول استفاده می کنید:
                (5 ′ x 12) + 3 ″ = 63 ″
                ۶۳″ x 2.54 = 160 cm

                  I don't read Persian, although it's a beautiful script I would suggest refraining from using a language other than English unless someone specifically asked for help in that language. I don't know how math equations are done in RtL languages like Persian, but an opinion about your math: Parentheses are usually used to denote an equation that needs to be done first. If Persian does their equations LtR putting 5x12 in parentheses is redundant, additionally BODMAS, or PEMDAS also makes this parenthesization redundant even if Persian equations are done RtL
