We certainly can. Now, the smallest unit of measurement that you have provided is the millimetre, and this can be found on most rulers. There are 10 millimetres in a centimetre, and this is the second-smallest unit of measurement. If you get a small ruler, you will be able to see the numbers spaced apart with 10 little ridges in between that denote every millimetre. The next measurement is the metre, and there are 100 centimetres for every metre. If you are ever in a swimming pool or find yourself measuring an adult, this can be really valuable when measuring depth, as well as the height of a person.

Next, we’ve got kilometres, and this is the largest unit of measurement of them all. There are 1,000 metres per kilometre, and this can be seen by the ‘kilo’ prefix on the word, which means 1,000.

This is known as the metric form of measuring things, and there are also inches, miles, feet and yards which can be effectively used for measuring distance. However, these are perceived to be quite traditional and they are not used as frequently any more in favour of millimetres, centimetres, metres and kilometres.

Make sure you keep brushing up on your skills, especially as they are going to be used on a regular basis in the years to come. The only things that are measured in inches these days appear to be pizzas, and feet are usually the unit of measurement for mountains and really tall buildings. You’ll find yards when encountering roadworks, and in the UK, miles are the standard format used for motoring.

Meter is the base unit to which the prefixes are applied.
