    1 inch/2.54cm = x inches/50 cm 1/2.54 = x/50 solve for x

    Okay so what we do second is to divide 50 cm by 2.54 cm (50/2.54)

    Just state the first 4 digits. Using a Google Caculator will help. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#safe=active&q=calculator

    So the quotient should have been 19.6850393701. However, we are going to shorten it to 19.68 which then we would divide it with 12.
