### Units of Length:

The basic unit of length measurements in metric units is a metre (m).

1 millimetre (mm) = $$\frac{1}{1000\:m} \scriptsize = 10^{-3}\:m$$

1 centimetre (cm)  = $$\frac{1}{100\:m}\scriptsize = 10^{-2}\:m$$

1 decimetre (dm)   =   $$\frac{1}{10\:m}\scriptsize = 10^{-1}\:m$$

1 decametre (Dm)  = 10 m = 101 m

1 hectometre (Hm) = 100 m = 102 m

1 kilometre (Km)  = 1,000 m = 103 m
