To convert 178 centimeters to inches, you use the conversion factor where 1 inch is equivalent to 2.54 centimeters. The formula to convert centimeters to inches is: \([ \text{Inches} = \text{Centimeters} \div 2.54 ]\)

Using this formula, you would calculate the number of inches in 178 cm as follows: \([ \text{Inches} = 178 \div 2.54 = 70.0787402 ]\) Rounding to a more practical number, you get approximately 70.08 inches.

The conversion from centimeters to inches involves dividing the number of centimeters by 2.54 because there are 2.54 centimeters in an inch. This creates a simple and straightforward way to convert measurements from the metric system, which is based on units of ten, to the imperial system, where measurements such as inches are more commonly used in some countries, including the United States. The result of 70.08 inches gives us a practical measurement in the imperial system, making it easier to conceptualize the length in terms familiar to those who use inches and feet.
