1 mm is equal to 0.1 centimeters:

1 mm = 0.1 cm

The distance d in centimeters (cm) is equal to the distance d in millimeters (mm) divided by 10:

d(cm) = d(mm) / 10

Example

Convert 20 millimeters to centimeters:

d(cm) = 20mm / 10 = 2cm


Definition:

There are ten millimetres in a centimetre. One millimetre is equal to 1000 micrometres or 1000000 nanometres. Since an inch is officially defined as exactly 25.4 millimetres, a millimetre is equal to exactly 5⁄127 (≈ 0.03937) of an inch.

A millimeter (symbol: mm) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined in terms of the meter, as 1/1000 of a meter, or the distance traveled by light in 1/299 792 458 000 of a second.
