## How many millimeters are there in a meter?

1 meter contains 1000 millimeters. Alternatively, 1 millimeter is equal to 0.001 meters.

Millimeters and meters are units of distance in the metric system. Also, the meter is the base unit of the International System of Units.

The other distance units are derived from the meter using suffixes. In this case, milli means 10-3, which means we multiply the distance in millimeters by 0.001 to get the distance in meters.

## How to convert from millimeters to meters?

Since 1 meter is equivalent to 1000 millimeters, we have to divide the distance in millimeters by 1000 to get the distance in meters. Therefore, we find a distance d in meters (m) by dividing the given distance d in millimeters by 1000.

#### Example 1:

Convert 2000 millimeters to meters.

If we divide the given distance by 1000, we have:

d(m) = 2000/1000

d(m) = 2 m

#### Example 2:

How many meters are equal to 54500 millimeters?

We find the equivalent in meters by dividing by 1000:

d(m) = 54500/1000

d(m) = 54.5 m

#### Example 3:

Convert 50 millimeters to meters.

If we divide the millimeters by 1000, we have:

d(m) = 50/1000

d(m) = 0.05 m
