INCHES to CENTIMETERS (
cm)
also spelled centimetre

1 one hundredth from a meter (0.01 m)
There are exactly 100 cm (centimeters) in the base unit meter.
Use the symbol cm

To convert inches to centimeters multiply by 2.54
1 inch = 2.54 centimeters = 25.4 millimeters
1 foot = 30.48 centimeters = 0 .3048 meter
1 yard = 0 .914 meter      1 mile = 1.609 kilometers

Like a dollar has 100 cents a meter in length also has
100 cm (100 centimeters)

Centimeters are precise for measuring
sewing patterns,
 your height, your waist and for altering clothes.

Snowfall is measured in centimeters (cm)
•
Rainfall is measured in millimeters (mm)

 

Smaller Measurement from a centimeter

1 millimeter
(1 mm)
Remember, milli is the prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So 1 one thousandth of the base unit meter
being 1 millimeter is simply written 1 mm
1 meter
(1 m)
Remember meter is the base unit for Length
and all other Units are derived from it.
There are exactly 100 cm (centimeters)
in  1 m (meter)
and there are exactly 1000 mm
(millimeters in 1 m (meter)
1 kilometer
(1 km)
Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning
1000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters (1000 m) being
the length of 1 kilometer
is simply written 1 km which is pronounced
"KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur".
