## How to convert milliseconds to seconds

We all use different units of measurement every day. Whether you're in a foreign country and need to convert the local imperial units to metric, or you're baking a cake and need to convert to a unit you are more familiar with.

Luckily, converting most units is very, very simple. In this case, all you need to know is that 1 ms is equal to 0.001 s.

Once you know what 1 ms is in seconds, you can simply multiply 0.001 by the total milliseconds you want to calculate.

So for our example here we have 188 milliseconds. So all we do is multiply 188 by 0.001:

188 x 0.001 = 0.188
