To convert 130 cm to inches, we use the conversion factor that 1 inch is equivalent to 2.54 cm. The formula to convert cm to inches is: inches = cm รท 2.54. By applying this formula, we calculate 130 cm converted to inches as follows:

\([ \text{inches} = \frac{130 \, \text{cm}}{2.54} \approx 51.18 \, \text{inches}. ]\)

This conversion is based on the international yard agreement made in the mid-20th century that settled an inch to exactly 2.54 cm to standardize the units between the metric system and the customary units used primarily in the United States. The calculation is straightforward; by dividing the centimeter value by 2.54, one can easily convert to inches. This allows for simple conversions between metric and imperial systems, useful in many fields and everyday situations. Given the precise nature of the conversion factor, the result is exact and can be used wherever a conversion from centimeters to inches is needed.
