If your pencil is 20 cm long how many millimeters is it

(1) Answers

For this, you have to know the unit conversions. For metric, this is somewhat easier to remember. cm = centimeters. centi means 100th. One way to remember this one is that a cent is 1/100th of a dollar. So also is a centimeter 1/100th of a meter. A millimeter is 1/1000th of a meter. so a centimeter is 10 millimeters.  [latex]\frac{20}{1} \frac{cm}{1} * \frac{10}{1}\frac{millimeters}{cm} = 200 millimeters[/latex] Therefore the solution is 200 millimeters.
