The conversion factor from centimeters to millimeters is 10, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 10 millimeters:

1 cm = 10 mm

To convert 24 centimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 24 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 10 mm

24 cm → L(mm)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in millimeters:

L(mm) = 24 cm × 10 mm

L(mm) = 240 mm

The final result is:

24 cm → 240 mm

We conclude that 24 centimeters is equivalent to 240 millimeters:

24 centimeters = 240 millimeters ## Alternative conversion
