A centimetre or centimeter (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system defined by the SI (International System of Units), equal to one hundredth of a metre. The symbol used is cm. The centimetre was the base unit of length in the now deprecated centimetre–gram–second (CGS) system of units. Nowadays, the system of units used is MKS (metre-kilogram-second).

The inch, abbreviated as in (or denoted with the symbol ") is a unit of length in the British imperial and United States customary systems of measurement.

One inch is to 1/12 of a foot, or 1/36 yard. Since the adoption of the international yard, the yard has been based on the metric system and defined as exactly 25.4 mm.
