Significant examples are electronic components, such as specifying the size of a screen.

To convert from inches to centimeters it is therefore necessary to multiply the value in inches by 2.54 and the result will be the same length in centimeters. To convert from centimeters to inches, divide the centimeter value by the number 2.54 to get the length in inches. As an example, 10 inches equals 25.4 centimeters, while 10 centimeters are exactly 3.937007874015748 inches.

## Thumbs in common parlance

In common parlance, inches are not only used as a unit of length, but also appear in countless clichés. So, with "I don't trust somebody an inch", you mean that you don't trust someone. "To not yield an inch" expresses that you do not want to yield. Also, "to shorten by an inch" is used to formulate that something is shortened by an inch. "Give somebody an inch, and he will take a mile" is synonymous with "whoever you give the finger to, he will take your whole arm". In addition, the thumb is often used to express that you have missed the target by a small amount or that you are gradually approaching a certain condition or place. The expression "by a fraction of an inch" translates to "per un hair".
