A meter consists of 100 centimeters, a square meter consists of 10,000 square centimeters, and a cubic meter consists of 1,000,000 cubic centimeters.

### How to Convert Millimeter to Centimeters?

To convert Millimeter to Centimeters, simply divide the Millimeter value by 10.

The formula used to calculate Millimeter to Centimeters -

**d**_{(mm)} = **d**_{(cm)} / 10

The distance *d* in Centimeters (cm) is equal to the distance *d* in Millimeters (mm) divided by 10.

### How many Centimeters in a Millimeter

In simple terms, 1 mm is equal to 0.1 cm.

The formula used is 1/10 = 0.1(cm)

### How many Millimeters in a Centimeter

1 Centimeter is equal to 10 Millimeters. So we can also say that there are 10 Millimeters in a Centimeter.
