Expert Answer:

The length of an object is measured by using a scale (or ruler) marked in centimetres and millimetres. In order to measure the length of an object, we place the scale (or ruler) along the object in such a way that the zero (0) mark of the scale coincides with the left end of the object. The length of object is then obtained by reading the scale division coinciding with the right side end of the object.
