### What prefix is smaller 'deci-' or 'micro-'?

Micro-. Both the prefixes 'deci-' and 'micro-' describe a certain amount of whatever unit of measure is being used. They owe their usage to the French Revolutionaries setting up a standard system of measures and weights. In that system, the prefix 'deci-' refers to one-tenth of whatever unit is being used. The prefix 'micro-' refers to one-millionth. Therefore, the prefix 'micro-' refers to a smaller quantity under consideration than does a 'deci-'.

### How does the prefix centimeter affect the meter unit in centimeter?

The prefix 'centi' makes a unit 10^2 or 0.01 times it size, so a centimetre can measure distances 0.01 times smaller than a meter and 1cm = 0.01m. For example: 2.45m = 245cm
