I'm getting the compiler error in Xcode: "Invalid operands to binary expression". How do I use the modulus in this simple height conversion program?

#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, const char * argv[]) {

    int centimeterHeight;
    printf("Enter height in centimeters: ");
    printf("\nYour height is %d feet %d inches",centimeterHeight/2.54/12,(centimeterHeight/2.54)%12);
    return 0;
