## Converting centimeters to feet using JavaScript

As someone who has always struggled with the imperial system of measurement, I have often found myself needing to convert measurements from metric to imperial, and vice versa. One common conversion is centimeters to feet, which can be easily accomplished using JavaScript.

### The Formula

The formula for converting centimeters to feet is simple:

`feet = cm / 30.48;`

It's worth noting that there are 30.48 centimeters in a foot.

### The Code

Here's some sample code that demonstrates how to convert centimeters to feet using JavaScript:

```
function cmToFeet(cm) {
var feet = cm / 30.48;
return feet.toFixed(2);
}
var myCm = 175;
var myFeet = cmToFeet(myCm);
console.log(myCm + "cm is equal to " + myFeet + "ft.");
```

Let's break this down:

- We first define a function called
`cmToFeet`

, which takes a single argument,`cm`

. - Inside the function, we calculate the number of feet by dividing the number of centimeters by 30.48.
- We then use the
`toFixed`

method to round the result to two decimal places. - The function returns the result.
- We then define a variable called
`myCm`

and set it to the number of centimeters we want to convert. - We call the
`cmToFeet`

function, passing in`myCm`

, and assign the result to a variable called`myFeet`

. - Finally, we use
`console.log`

to output the result.

There are many other ways to accomplish this conversion using JavaScript, but this is a simple and straightforward method that should work for most cases.
