28 Centimeters to Inches equals 11.0236 in.

To convert centimeters to inches, you need to know the conversion factor between these two units of length. One inch is equivalent to 2.54 centimeters. Therefore, to convert centimeters to inches, you divide the number of centimeters by 2.54. In this case, we have 28 centimeters that we want to convert to inches.

The calculation proceeds as follows: \([ 28 \, \text{cm} \div 2.54 = 11.02 \, \text{inches} ]\) So, 28 centimeters is approximately equal to 11.02 inches. To achieve this result, we simply divided the given number of centimeters by the conversion factor (2.54) that represents how many centimeters are in an inch. This simple division helps in converting from one unit of measurement to another, ensuring accuracy in measurements across different systems (metric and imperial in this case).
