# Convert Inches To Centimeters

In this section, you will learn to convert Inches to Centimeters. The following program helps you in converting Inches to Centimeters.

Code Description:

To convert Inches to Centimeters we have used a formula "cm  = inches * 2.54;". The compiler will ask to enter the number of inches from the keyboard due to the method  "
BufferedReader bf = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));". Here we have taken inches to be of type float. To avoid loss of precession we have cast the output to be in float.

Here is the code of the program:

 ``` import java.io.*; import java.util.*; class InchesToCms{   public static void main (String[] args)throws Exception{   //1 inches = 2.54 centimeters;   BufferedReader bf = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));   System.out.print("Enter the inches: ");   float inches = Float.parseFloat(bf.readLine());   float cm = inches * 2.54f;   System.out.println(inches + " inches is " + cm + " centimeter(s).");   } }```

Output of the program:

 C:\unique>javac InchesToCms.java C:\unique>java InchesToCms Enter the inches: 1 1.0 inches is 2.54 centimeter(s). C:\unique>
