Centimeters

Millimeters

A centimetre is a unit of length that is equal to one-hundredth of a metre in the International System of Standards (SI). It is denoted as ‘cm’ in short.

Common Usage:

- Used to measure the length of textbooks.
- Used to measure the length of pens.
- Used to measure the length of bottles.

In the International System of Units (SI), a millimetre is a unit of length equal to one-thousandth of a metre. It is denoted as ‘mm’ in short.

Say a few examples of millimetres would be:

- The size of the dial of a wristwatch
- The size of a diamond
- The size of a coin

To convert the centimetre to the millimetre, multiply the required centimetre by 10 as,

1 cm = 10 mm

Formula,

Y cm = Y × 10 mm

**Problem 1:** Convert 100 centimetres to millimetres.**Solution**:

Step 1: The required centimetres is 100.

Step 2: The formula to convert centimetres to millimetres is,

Y cm = Y × 10 mm

Step 3: Substitute the required values in the above formula. Hence,

100 cm = 100 × 10 mm

= 1000 mm

Therefore, 100 centimetres is 1000 millimetres.

**Problem 2:** Convert 250 centimetres to millimetres.**Solution**:

Step 1: The required Centimetre is 250.

Step 2: Substitute the values in the formula & convert the required centimetres to millimetres, as mentioned in the previous example. Hence,

250 cm = 10 × 250

= 2500 mm

Therefore, 250 centimetre is 2500 millimetre.

**Problem 3**: Convert 600 centimetres to millimetres.**Solution**:

Step 1: The required Centimetre is 600.

Step 2: Substitute the values in the formula & convert the required centimetres to millimetres. Hence,

600 cm = 10 × 600 mm

= 6000 mm

Therefore, 600 centimetres is 6000 millimetres.

**Problem 4**: Convert 4 centimetres to millimetres.**Solution**:

Step 1: The required Centimetre is 4.

Step 2: Substitute the values in the formula & convert the required centimetres to millimetres. Hence,

4 cm = 10 × 4 mm

= 40 mm

Therefore, 4 centimetre is 400 millimetre.

**Problem 5**: Convert 10 centimetres to millimetres.**Solution**:

Step 1: The required Centimetre is 10.

Step 2: Substitute the values in the formula & convert the required centimetres to millimetres. Hence,

10 cm = 10 × 10

= 100 mm

Therefore, 10 centimetre is 100 millimetre.

**How do you convert cm to mm?**

To convert the centimetre to the millimetre, multiply the required centimetre by 10 as,

1 cm = 10 mm

Formula,

Y cm = Y × 10 mm

**Which is bigger cm or mm?**

A centimetre is a unit of length that is equal to one-hundredth of a metre in the International System of Standards (SI). It is denoted as ‘cm’ in short. And in the International System of Units (SI), a millimetre is a unit of length equal to one-thousandth of a metre.

It is denoted as ‘mm’ in short. Therefore Centimetre is a bigger unit of measurement in comparison to a millimetre.

**How many cm means 1 mm?**

1 cm = 10 mm

**How do you convert 2 cm to millimetres?**

To convert centimetre to millimetre, multiply the required centimetre by 10 as,

1 cm = 10 mm

Formula,

Y cm = Y × 10 mm

Hence,

2 cm = 2 × 10

= 20 mm

Therefore, 2 cm is 20 mm.

**What is 1cm to 1m?**

1 cm = 10 mm

1m = 100 cm

**Convert 6000cm to mm.**

To convert centimetre to millimetre, multiply the required centimetre by 10 as,

1 cm = 10 mm

Formula,

Y cm = Y × 10 mm

Hence,

6000 cm = 6000 × 10

= 60000 mm

Therefore, 6000 cm is 60000 mm.

**Convert 110mm in cm.**

To convert centimetre to millimetre, multiply the required centimetre by 10 as,

1 cm = 10 mm

Formula,

Y cm = Y × 10 mm
