2.6 Centimeters to Inches equals 1.0236 in.

To convert 2.6 centimeters to inches, you would use the conversion factor where 1 inch is equivalent to 2.54 centimeters. The formula to convert centimeters to inches is therefore ( \text{Inches} = \text{Centimeters} \div 2.54 ). Applying this to 2.6 centimeters, the calculation would be ( 2.6 \div 2.54 ), which gives you approximately 1.02362 inches.
