Foot (abbreviation: ft): (plural feet) is a unit of length in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. Since 1959, both units have been accepted equivalent to exactly 0.3048 meters by international agreement.

Centimeter (abbreviation: cm): is a unit of length in the SI metric system, equal to one hundredth of a metre, centi being the prefix for a factor of 1/100. The centimetre was the base unit of length in the now deprecated centimetre–gram–second (CGS) system of units.
