**Hint:**We are given height of man in inches and we need to convert it into cm. Now, we know that 1 inch is equal to 2.54cm. So, the height of the man in cms will be equal to 2.54 multiplied by height of man in inches divided by 1.

**Complete step by step answer:**

In this question, we are given that a man is 76 inches tall and we need to find his height in centimeters. Also, it is given that one inch equals to 2.54 cm.

Given data:

Height of man in inches $ = 76$ inch

$ \Rightarrow $1 inch $ = 2.54\,cm$

$ \Rightarrow $Height of man in centimeters $ = ?$

Here, to find the height of the man in centimeters, we are going to use the method of cross multiplication. Let the height of man in cm be h. Therefore,

$1\,inch = 2.54\,cm \\

\Rightarrow 76\,inches = h \\ $

Therefore, h will be equal to 76 multiplied by 2.54 divided by 1 and the unit of $h$ will be $cm$.Therefore,

$\Rightarrow h = \dfrac{{76 \times 2.54}}{1} \\

\Rightarrow h = 193.04\,cm$

Hence, the height of the man 76 inches tall in centimeters will be equal to 193.04cm.

**Hence, option B is the correct answer.**

**Note:**We can similarly convert cm to inches also by dividing the given value in cm by 2.54 cm. For example: Let us convert 193.04 cm into inches.

193.04 inches in cm $ = \dfrac{{193.04}}{{2.54}} = 76\,inches$
