## Conversion formula

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 3.2 centimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 3.2 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

3.2 cm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 3.2 cm × 10 mm

L(mm) = 32 mm

The final result is:

3.2 cm → 32 mm

We conclude that 3.2 centimeters is equivalent to 32 millimeters:

3.2 centimeters = 32 millimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 0.03125 × 3.2 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 3.2 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.03125 millimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that three point two centimeters is approximately thirty-two millimeters:

3.2 cm ≅ 32 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero point zero three one times three point two centimeters.
