    i inch = 2.54 cm

    5 ft=60 inches, 5' 10 "=70"

    The only distance converter I memorize is 1 in = 2.54 cm exactly.

    60+10 = 70 inches

    70 in (2.54 cm/in) (1 m/100cm) = 1.764 m exactly

    It is: (70*2.54)/100 = 1.778 meters

    The conversion factor is 1inch = 2.54 cm 

    5ft 10 in = 5(12) + 10 = 70 inches 

    70 x 2.54 = 177.8 cm 

    Divide by '100' to convert cm to metres (m) 

    Hence 

    177.8 cm = 1.778 m 

    It follows 

    5 ft 10 ins = 1.778 m

    There are many sites that will do conversions for you. However, using common equivalencies you need to be able to convert from imperial to metric.

    12 inches = 1 foot so,

    5 feet 10 inches is (5 x 12) + 10 = 70 inches

    Now, 1 inch = 2.54 cm

    i.e. 70 x 2.54 = 177.8 cm

    As we know that 100 cm = 1 metre we have:

    177.8 cm = 1.778 metres

    or, 1.78 metres

    That's 5*12 + 10 = 60 + 10 = 70 inches

    Multiply by 2.54 to get 177.8 cm

    Divide by 100 to get exactly 1.778 metres
