## What are meters?

Meters are used to measure the length of a standard object or **shape**. It is a base unit that belongs to the SI system of units and is used normally for medium-sized lengths **like** the side of a room, windows **length**, door length, and others.

Normally, we take measurements of **clothes** in this unit. Multiple length-measuring units have been derived **from** this base unit that is used depending on the size of the shape/object. To show a measurement in **meters**, we need to write “**m**” along with the number showing the length. The measurements given in this unit can be **converted** to other units including miles.

### What are miles?

A mile is another length measuring **unit** that belongs to the US customary system of units. It is not used **commonly** but is used particularly in **Western countries**. Miles are used to show the distance between two distant objects, cities, **states**, and points.

**For example**, we use miles to show the distance between Virginia and **California** instead of meters. To show the distance in miles, we write “**mi**” just beside the number showing the **distance**. It means we have to write 254 miles as “**254 mi**” because “**mi**” is the symbol used for miles.
