If you have mm divide by 10 (mm/10)to get cm

Example: 35mm = ________ cm

35mm/10= 3.5cm

If you have cm multiply by 10 (cm*10) to get this Millimeters (mm)

Example: 88cm = ___mm

88cmx10= 880mm

If you have Meters (m) multiply by 100 to get centimeters (cm).

Example: 20m=__cm

20mx100=2,000cm

*Take meters & multiply by 100 to get centimeters!

If you have Centimeters (cm) Divide by 100 (cm/100) get meters.

Example: 150cm=__m

150/100=1.5m

Notice you're going from a smaller amount cm's to a larger amount meter's...so the number is smaller in the answer.

If you have Millimeters (mm) Divide by 1000 (mm/1000)to get Meters.

Example: 300mm=__m

300/1000=0.3m

*Again, smaller amount has a big number and the bigger amount has a smaller number.

0° celsius

32° fahrenheit (the freezing point of water)

Convert 37°C to Fahrenheit

98.6°F

*37°x 9= 333, then ÷ that by 5 (333÷5)= 66.6, take that answer and add 32 (66.6+32)= 98.6 -this is your answer!!!

100° celsius

212° fahrenheit (boiling point of water)

Convert 98.6°F to Celsius

37°C

*Take 98.6-32=66.6, take that answer & multiply it by 5 (66.6x5)=333, take that & ÷ by 9 (333÷9)= 37 -so your answer in celsius is 37°C
