An inch is a unit of measurement in the American Standard of measurements. This is a very easy to use centimeter to inches converter. Shows result as a fraction. The symbol for millimeter is mm.

Defaults to 2 halves. Set to "yes" for all units to be abbreviated default , "no" for all to be spelled out, or "mos" for the units being converted to be spelled out and the converted units to be abbreviated. Changes whether units are linked. Set to "no" to not link units default or "yes" to link units.

Changes output format of conversion. Set to "cm" with input values in feet and inches to output the conversion as centimetres.

The usual options would be a ruler, yardstick, or tape measure. Use a yardstick to measure objects that are longer than a feet 12 inches. Use a measuring stick when you need to measure the length of a rigid straight edge or line. Rulers are best for short distances. Yard sticks are better for slightly longer distances. Place the starting end of the measuring tool against one edge of the object you want to measure. The starting edge of the measuring tool and the starting edge of the object should be perfectly aligned.

Extend the measuring tool down the length being measured. Bring the measuring tool out along the length of the object you're measuring. Keep the tool parallel to this length the entire way down it. When using a measuring stick, the stick should lie flat against the edge or line being measured. Read the previous inch value.

Locate the numbered value on the measuring tool that falls out immediately before the opposite end of the line, edge, or distance being measured. This numbered value is the number of whole inches in length. The numbered values on a ruler, yardstick, or measuring tape all correspond to whole inches. Count the unnumbered lines past the previous inch value. Identify the unnumbered line on the measuring tool that lands at the exact end of the distance being measured.

Count the unnumbered lines in between the measured whole inch value and that final line, including the final line itself. You also need to count the number of unnumbered lines in between numbered values to determine the fraction.

Add the fraction to the inch value. Add the fraction value you just counted onto the whole inch value you already measured. This should give you your final measurement.

If the ruler has seven unnumbered lines in between numbered marks the inches are broken down into eighths. Find an object roughly an inch in length.

The most common object used to estimate inches is the adult thumb. On average, the width of an adult thumb is about 1 inch. Trace the length to be measured on a sheet of paper. Place the edge you want to measure on a blank sheet of white paper.
