Conversion Calculation:

The calculation for converting centimeters (cm) to millimeters (mm) is quite straightforward. 1 centimeter is equal to 10 millimeters. To convert 15.1 cm to millimeters, you would multiply the length value in centimeters by 10 (since there are 10 mm in 1 cm). Here is how the calculation is performed:

\([15.1 \, \text{cm} \times 10 = 151 \, \text{mm}]\)

The conversion from centimeters to millimeters is based upon the metric system, where the prefix "centi" indicates one hundredth, and "milli" indicates one thousandth. Given that one meter is the base unit, a centimeter represents one hundredth of a meter, and a millimeter represents one thousandth of a meter. Therefore, converting from cm to mm directly translates to moving one decimal place to the right, or equivalently, multiplying the cm value by 10. This inherent decimal-based consistency in the metric system makes conversions like these particularly straightforward.
