1″ (Inch, in)
inch is a value for measuring lengths and distances, heights and widths and etc.
One inch is equal to 72.0 points.
On this page we consider in detail all variants for convert 1 inch to points and all opportunities how to convert inches with usage comprehensive examples, related charts and conversion tables for inches. Here you will find all the ways for calculating and converting inches in pt and back. If you want to know how many points are in 1 inch you can obtain the answer in several ways:
To indicate inches, we will use the abbreviation "in" to indicate points we will use the abbreviation "pt". All options to convert "in" to "pt" we will look more detail in individual topics below. So, we're starting explore all avenues of transformation one inch and conversions between inches and points.
To convert 1 inch into points we consider using the online converter on the web page. The online converter has very simple interface and will help us quickly convert our inches. The online inch converter has an adaptive shape for different devices and therefore for monitors it looks like the left and right input fields but on tablets and mobile phones it looks like the top and bottom input fields. If you want convert any inch values, you must only enter required value in the left (or top) input field and automatically you get the result in the right (or bottom) field. Under each field you see a more detailed result of the calculation and the coefficient of 72.0 which is used in the calculations. The big green string, under the input fields - "1 Inch = 72.0 Points" further enhances and shows final result of the conversion. Calculator for converting units of measurement works symmetrically in both directions. If you enter any value in any field, you will get the result in the opposite field. Clicking on the arrow icons between the input fields you can swap the fields and perform other calculations. We are all made for easily converting any values between inches and pt.
Results conversion 1 inch into points. 1 inch to "pt" is equal to 72.0 points.
If you came to this page, you already see the result work of the online calculator. In the left (or top) field you see the value of 1 "in" on the right (or bottom) box you see the value of result is equal to 72.0 "pt". Write briefly: 1 "in" = 72.0 "pt"
We have briefly reviewed how to use the unit Converter on this page, but this is only part of the features of the page service. We made an interesting possibility to compute all possible values for units of measure in the lower tables. These tables are used to convert basic units of measurement: Metric conversion chart, US Survey conversion chart, International conversion chart, Astronomical conversion chart. Please, find these 4 tables at the bottom of this page they have the headers:
To answer this question, we start with a brief definition of inch and point, and their purpose. The inch and point units of length which can be converted one to another using a conversion factor which is equal to 72.0. This coefficient answers the question how many points are equivalent to one inch. The value of this multiplier determines the basic value to calculate all other lengths, sizes and other transformations for these units (inch and point), it is enough to know the value, i.e. to remember that 1 inch = 72.0 (pt). Knowing the number of points in one inch by simple multiplication we can calculate any values. Let's do a simple calculation using the multiplication:
1″ × 72.0 = 72.0 (pt)
Thus it is seen that after multiplying by the coefficient we get the following relationship:
1 Inch = 72.0 Points
We have already seen how to convert these two values and how change inches to points. So in summary, you can write all possible results that have the same meaning.
1 inch to pt = 72.0 pt
1 inch in pt = 72.0 pt
1 inch into pt = 72.0 pt
1 in = 72.0 pt
1″ = 72.0 pt
1″ is 72.0 pt
one inch = 72.0 pt
To convert 1 inch into points we can use many ways:
In the calculations for inches and points, we will use the formula presented below that would quickly get the desired result.
Y (in) × 72.0 = X (pt) Y - value of inches X - result in points
That is, you need to remember that 1 inch is equal 72.0 points, and when converting inches just multiply the number of inches (in this case 1 inch) by a factor of 72.0. For example, we transform the set of values 1.0″, 2.0″, 3.0″, 4.0″, 5.0″ into points and get the result in the following examples:
1.0 (in) × 72.0 = 72.0 (pt) 2.0 (in) × 72.0 = 144.0 (pt) 3.0 (in) × 72.0 = 216.0 (pt) 4.0 (in) × 72.0 = 288.0 (pt) 5.0 (in) × 72.0 = 360.0 (pt)
In all variants we multiplied the all inches in range from 1.0″ to 5.0″ with the same ratio of 72.0 and got the correct results in calculations.
To calculate the proportions you need to know the reference value in points for 1 inch and according to the rules of arithmetic we can calculate any value in points for any length in inches. See the next examples. We form the proportion for 3 values our inches 1.0″, 2.0″, 3.0″ and calculate results values in points:
1 (in) — 72.0 (pt) 1.0 (in) — X (pt) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 1.0(in) × 72.0(pt) ÷ 1(in) = 72.0(pt)
1 (in) — 72.0 (pt) 2.0 (in) — X (pt) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 2.0(in) × 72.0(pt) ÷ 1(in) = 144.0(pt)
1 (in) — 72.0 (pt) 3.0 (in) — X (pt) Solve the above proportion for X to obtain: X = 3.0(in) × 72.0(pt) ÷ 1(in) = 216.0(pt)
All proportions used reference value 1 inch = 72.0 pt
You can use our basic universal online converter on the current web page and convert any your length dimensions and distances between inches and points in any directions free and fast.
Currently, the field for inches contains the number 1 (in) you can change it. Just enter any number into field for inches (for example any value from our set: 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 inches or any other value) and get the fast result into field for points. How to use the inch online calculator you can more detail read at this link manual for the calculator.
For example, we take the 9 values into inches and will try to calculate the result values in points. Also, we will use the web calculator (you can find it at the top of this page). In the set up a table in the left margin we write the value in inches in the right margin you see the values that you should obtain after calculation. You can check it right now, without leaving the site and make sure that the calculator works correctly and quickly. In all calculations, we used the ratio 72.0 which helps us to get the desired values of computation results in points. Please, see the results in the next table:
|2599156 (in)||× 72.0||= 187139232.0 (pt)|
|2599157 (in)||× 72.0||= 187139304.0 (pt)|

Many people can hardly imagine the relationship between inch and point. In this picture, you can clearly see the ratio of these quantities to understand them in real life. The ratio of the lengths of the segments is retained on screens with any resolution as for large monitors as well as for small mobile devices.
The graph shows the relative values the inches in the form of rectangular segments of different lengths and colors. As well as the visual representation of 1 (in) with the reference value in points.
