1 cm = 10 mm

To convert 5.7 centimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 5.7 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

5.7 cm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 5.7 cm × 10 mm

L(mm) = 57 mm

The final result is:

5.7 cm → 57 mm

We conclude that 5.7 centimeters is equivalent to 57 millimeters:

5.7 centimeters = 57 millimeters
