How to Convert Measurements?

Converting measurements is done differently depending on what you are converting to and from. If you first find how many of something equals how many of the other thing then you can convert by multiplying or dividing. For example 1 centimeter = 10 mm so once you know that you can convert from centimeters to millimeters by multiplying centimeters by ten to get mm or dividing millimeters by ten to get centimeters.
