This example problem demonstrates how to convert millimeters to meters.

## Millimeters to Meters Problem

Express 5810 millimeters in meters.

## Solution

1 meter = 1000 millimeters

Set up the conversion so that the desired unit will be canceled out. In this case, we want m to be the remaining unit.

distance in m = (distance in mm) x (1 m/1000 mm)

distance in m = (5810/1000) m

distance in m = 5.810 m

## Answer

5810 millimeters is 5.810 meters.
