you cannot go from inches to centimeters squared. one inch = 2.54 cm

With great difficulty

cm2 is a measure of area and inchesare a measure of length.

Area = length x width

A length has no width, so its area is length x 0 = zero - that is it has no area.

No matter how long you have in inches its area will always be 0 inches2 and so it is impossible to convert cm2 to inches.

If you were being sloppy with your units and meant "...convert cm squared to inches squared?", then:

2.54 cm = 1 in

1 cm2 = 1 cm x 1 cm

= (1 ÷ 2.54) in x (1 ÷ 2.54) in

= 1 ÷ 6.4516 in2

So divide the cm2 by 6.4516 to convert to in2 which is the same as multiply by approx 0.155   Wiki User
