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
