How do you convert 15 feet to centimetres?

Centimetres and feet are measuring units to measure the length or heights of any object or a person. There are measuring instruments with which we can measure heights in centimetres (cm) or feet. Let us learn how to convert cm to feet.

We know that

1 foot = 0.3048 meters

1 meter = 1/0.3048 feet

100 cm = 3.28084 feet

1cm = (3.28084/100) feet

1 cm = 0.0328084 feet

Formula

The unit feet is represented by “ft” and the centimetre is represented by “cm”. Centimeter is considered as a part of the metric system and is used in the International System of units. The unit feet is used in the US customary measurement system. One foot is approximately equal to 30.48 centimetres.

1 ft = 30.48 cm

So we have to multiply the given number by 30.48 to convert feet to cm

Solution

We need to convert 15 feet to cm

Hence we will use the above formula 15 ft = 15 x 30.48

= 457.2 cm

Answer

Hence, 15 feet=457.2cm
