To convert centimeters to inches, you use the conversion factor where 1 inch equals 2.54 centimeters. Therefore, to convert 23 centimeters to inches, you divide the number of centimeters by 2.54. The calculation looks like this: 23 cm / 2.54 cm/inch.

This calculation is based on the unit conversion principle where you multiply or divide to convert from one unit of measurement to another. By dividing the length value in centimeters by the value of one inch in centimeters, you effectively convert the length from the metric system (centimeters) to the imperial system (inches). Thus, for 23 centimeters, the calculation is 23 divided by 2.54, which equals approximately 9.055 inches. This method allows you to precisely convert between the two units of measurement used in many parts of the world for various measurements including length, which is often needed in crafts, construction, and everyday measurements.
