# Jim measures the side of a box and finds it to be 0.564 meters long. How long is it in centimeters?

**Solution:**

Given that, the side of the box is 0.564 meters.

We know that 1 meter = 100 centimeter

∴ 0.564 meters = 0.564 × 100 = 56.4 centimeters

Converting metres to millimetres,

1 meter = 1000 millimeters

∴ 0.564 meters = 0.564 × 1000 = 564 millimeters

**Example:**

Jim measures the circumference of a circular box and finds it to be 150 cm. How long is it in millimeters?

Given that, the circumference of the box is 150 cm.

We know that 1 centimeter = 10 millimeters

∴ 150 centimeters = 150 × 10 = 1500 millimeters

## Jim measures the side of a box and finds it to be 0.564 meters long. How long is it in centimeters?

**Summary: **

Jim measures the side of a box and finds it to be 0.564 meters long which is equal to 56.4 centimeters.
