That's one inch (2.54 cm) less than 6 feet. (6 feet = 72 inches = 182.9 cm)

180.3cm.

You can find converters very easily on the internet if you need a precise figure, but for a reasonably accurate rough calculation just times the number of inches by 2.5.

dude I find it hard to convert on google. When you type 5.11 feet the measure's only 120. How to circumvent this?
Dude, there are 12 inches in a foot, so 11 inches is not .11 feet, but rather 11/12ths.
Convert 11/12 to decimal: .9167.

Ah, you can't just put a decimal place between the feet and inches. They are not expressed in the same way as metric metres/centimetres. .11 foot is not 11 inches. This would only have worked if there were 100 inches to a foot, which is not the case.

Easist is just to convert to inches alone. 12 inches in a foot so do your 5(foot) x 12 and then add the other odd inches. then do an inch to centimetre conversion.

There are some converters where you put in the feet and inches separately and it does the whole thing for you.

Answer is 5' 11" = 180.3 cm

Solution:
(5' · 12") + 11" = 71"
71" · 2.54 = 180.3 cm

1 Feet = 12 Inch

1 Feet = 30.48 cm

1 Inch = 2.54 cm

12 inch = 1 Feet
