Let's take a closer look at the conversion formulas so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.

The formula to convert from mm to m is:

m = mm ÷ 1,000

The formula to convert from m to mm is:

mm = m x 1,000

Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting from millimeters to meters (mm to m) or converting from meters to millimeters (m to mm).

Task: Convert 1500 millimeters to meters (show work)Formula:mm ÷ 1,000 = mCalculations:1,500 mm ÷ 1,000 = 1.5 mResult:1,500 mm is equal to 1.5 m

Task: Convert 3.6 meters to millimeters (show work)Formula:m x 1,000 = mmCalculations:3.6 m x 1,000 = 3,600 mmResult:3.6 m is equal to 3,600 mm
