1 inch = 25.4mm

therefore

1 mm = (1/25.4) inch

"Z" mm = (1/25.4) * Z inch

There's a potentially easier way to remember this.

If you just remember that ââ 1" = 2.54 cm ââ then you can get a LOT of other conversions.

Just know that 1 cm = 10 mm, so 2.54 cm = 25.4 mm

Then 1" = 25.4 mm

âº 1 mm = (1/25.4)"

That's it.

Then multiply both sides by your mm value and you'll have your values in inches.
