Here's what we know:
There are 2.54 centimeters in an inch.
There are 100 centimeters in a meter.
That means in order to convert, we can multiply the following:
1080 in * 2.54 cm/in * 1 m/100 cm
When we cancel out the units, we get the following:
1080 * 2.54 / 100 meters
So all you need to do from here is multiply 1080 and 2.54 together, then once you complete that, divide by 100 (which you can do just by moving the decimal place to the left two positions).
