Like a dollar has 100 cents, a meter in length
also has 100 cm (100 centimeters)
 centimeters (cm) are precise for measuring sewing patterns, your height, your waist and for altering clothes. Snowfall is measured in centimeters (cm) Rainfall is measured in millimeters (mm)

being 1 millimeter is simply written 1 mm.

Larger Measurement from a centimeter

1 meter
(1 m)

Remember meter is the
base unit for Length

and there are exactly 1 000 mm
(millimeters in 1 m (meter).

Larger Measurement from a meter

1 kilometer
(1 km)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning
1 000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters (1 000 m)
being the length of 1 kilometer
is simply written 1 km which is pronounced
"KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur".
