2.54cm / inch 78cm^3*(1 inch/2.54cm)^3 The cm cancel out =78/(2.54^3)

Stoichiometry has a fancy name but it's very easy. Just like \[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }*\frac{3}{3} = \frac{3}{6} \] You are multiplying your value by 1, because the value of numerator equals the denominator. And just keep doing it so units cancel out to the ones you want to result to. 2.54 cm = 1 inch and you keep canceling the cm until you get in^3 (and not 1/in^3)

\[78cm^3\frac{ 1 inch }{ 2.54cm }\frac{1 inch}{2.54cm}\frac{1inch}{2.54cm}\]

It's correct. If you have cm in the numerator and multiply it by something that has cm in the denominator, the cms cancel out.
