The centimeter is a unit of length of the metric measurement system and is equal to one-hundredth of a meter. The inch is a unit of length in the British (Imperial) and U.S. customary measurement system. One inch is 1/12 of a foot or 1/36 of a yard. Both the Imperial and U.S. customary measurement systems have British origins. After the United States separated from the United Kingdom, it did not update its measuring system. The United Kingdom later updated its system to what is known today as the imperial one.
