To convert 5.08 centimeters (cm) to inches, we use the conversion factor that 1 inch is equal to 2.54 cm. The calculation involves dividing the length value in centimeters by this conversion factor.

The calculation process is as follows: \([ \text{Length in inches} = \frac{\text{Length in cm}}{\text{Conversion factor}} ]\) \([ \text{Length in inches} = \frac{5.08}{2.54} ]\) \([ \text{Length in inches} = 2 ]\) Thus, 5.08 cm is equal to 2 inches when converted. This simply indicates that if you have an object measuring 5.08 cm, it would be equivalent to its dimension being 2 inches when measured using the imperial system. The division by 2.54 (the number of centimeters in an inch) provides a direct conversion from the metric system to the imperial system, making it more relatable for those more familiar with inches.
