## How to convert centimeters to millimeters?

We can convert centimeters to millimeters by multiplying by 10. Therefore, we can find a distance d in millimeters (mm) by multiplying the given distance d in centimeters by 10.

#### Example 1:

How many millimeters are equal to 67 centimeters?

Multiplying the given distance by 10, we have

d(mm) = 67 × 10

d(mm) = 670 mm

#### Example 2:

Convert 5.5 centimeters to millimeters.

We have to multiply the given centimeters by 10:

d(mm) = 5.5 × 10

d(mm) = 55 mm

#### Example 3:

Convert 57.86 centimeters to millimeters.

By multiplying the given distance by 10, we have:

d(mm) = 57.86 × 10

d(mm) = 578.6 mm
