From 172-173 cm

There's plenty of free conversion calculators out there, but if you want to know the process, you need to know at one conversion factor. (like how many cm's in a foot or feet in a meter, etc)

I know there are 2.54 cm's in an inch so we can start from there:

Convert feet to inches: =5.8ft * 12in/ft=69.6 inches

inches to cm: 69.6in X 2.54cm/in+ 176.8 cm(rounded).

Note that the units of 'ft' cancel in the first calc, and 'in' cancels in the 2nd
