So, we know that cent = 100, mille = 1000. But a

**centimeter**is not equal to 100 meters much like a dollarcent is not equal to 100 dollars, and a**millimeter**is not 1000 m; 1000 meters is a kilometer! So a**centimeter**is equal to 10**millimeters**. That would mean that a**centimeter**is longer**than**a**millimeter**.Also know, how can I convert cm to mm?

**Multiply the centimeter value by 10.**

- The "millimeter" is a smaller unit than the "centimeter," even though both are derived from the basic "meter." When you convert any larger metric unit to a smaller one, you must multiply the original value.
- Example: 58.75 cm * 10 = 587.5 mm.

Is 10mm 1 cm?
