C shell script to convert from inches to meters and centimetres

Write a C shell script "in2ftcm" which uses arithmetic expansion to convert from inches to meters and centimetres, rounded down to the nearest whole number of centimetres. Input should be a whole number of inches, and you may assume. Explain your algorithm to determine the inches from the centimetres input.
