How to convert Millimetre to Metre?

To convert millimetre to metre, multiply the given value of millimetres by 0.001 to get the value in metre.

The formula to convert millimetre to metre is given below:
X mm = X × 0.001m
where X is the value in millimetres.

Examples of the conversion of Millimetre to Metre

Problem 1: Convert 12 millimetres to metres.
Solution 1:

Step 1: The given value is 12 millimetres.
Step 2: To convert millimetre to metre, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X mm = X × 0.001m
Hence,
12 mm = 12 × 0.001m
= 0.012 m
Therefore, 12 millimetres is 0.012 metres.

Problem 2: Convert 10 millimetres to metres.
Solution 2:

Step 1: The given value is 10 millimetres.
Step 2: To convert millimetre to metre, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X mm = X × 0.001m
Hence,
10 mm = 10 × 0.001m
= 0.01 m
Therefore, 10 millimetres is 0.01 metres.

Problem 3: Convert 150 millimetres to metres.
Solution 3:

Step 1: The given value is 150 millimetres.
Step 2: To convert millimetre to metre, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X mm = X × 0.001m
Hence,
150 mm = 150 × 0.001m
= 0.15 m
Therefore, 150 millimetres is 0.15 metres.

Problem 4: Convert 130 millimetres to metres.
Solution 4:

Step 1: The given value is 130 millimetres.
Step 2: To convert millimetre to metre, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X mm = X × 0.001m
Hence,
130 mm = 130 × 0.001m
= 0.13 m
Therefore, 130 millimetres is 0.13 metres.

Problem 5: Convert 1450 millimetres to metres.
Solution 5:

Step 1: The given value is 1450 millimetres.
Step 2: To convert millimetre to metre, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X mm = X × 0.001m
Hence,
1450 mm = 1450 × 0.001m
= 1.45 m
Therefore, 1450 millimetres is 1.45 metres.

Problem 6: Convert 30 m to mm.
Solution 6:

Step 1: The given value is 30 millimetres.
Step 2: To convert millimetre to metre, substitute the given values at the required places in the conversion formula.
X mm = X × 0.001m
Hence,
30 mm = 30 × 0.001m
= 0.03 m
Therefore, 30 millimetres is 0.03 metres.
