To convert millimeters (mm) to inches, you can use the conversion factor where 1 inch is equivalent to 25.4 millimeters. This means if you have a measurement in millimeters and you want to know how many inches that is, you divide the number of millimeters by 25.4. For the case of 56 mm to inches, the calculation is performed by dividing 56 by 25.4.

Specifically, the calculation will look like this: 56 mm / 25.4 = 2.20472440945 inches. For most practical purposes, it might be rounded to a more manageable number, such as 2.20 inches when requiring precision, or simply 2.2 inches for a quick reference. This conversion formula is fundamental in many fields, including engineering, construction, and everyday situations requiring measurement conversions from the metric system (common in most parts of the world) to the imperial system (used primarily in the United States).
