0.787 inches

#### Explanation:

This is a “conversion”, so we will need the ratio, or conversion factor between the two first. In this case it is 2.54cm/inch.

We want a final answer in dimensions of inches, so we will need to invert this ratio in order to multiply it by “cm” to get the desired final dimension of “inches”.
