# How do you convert 75 mm to centimeters?

Sep 9, 2016

Simply by dividing 10.

#### Explanation:

$\text{milli} = {10}^{-} 3$, $\text{centi} = {10}^{-} 2$

$1$ $m m$ $=$ $1 \times {10}^{-} 3 m$.

$1$ $c m$ $=$ $1 \times {10}^{-} 2 m$.

$\frac{1 \cdot c m}{1 \cdot m m}$ $=$ $\frac{1 \times {10}^{-} 2 m}{1 \times {10}^{-} 3 m}$ $=$ $10$

Thus $75 \cdot m m$ $=$ $7.5 \cdot c m$.
