"Milli" means thousandth in Latin. One millimeter is one thousandth of a meter. 8 millimeters is eight thousands of a meter. One centimeter (NOTE the correct spelling) is one hundredth of a meter ("centi" means hundredth in Latin). In one centimeter, you have ten millimeters. Therefore, since you are asking about 8 millimeters, you have 0.8 centimeter. Get a ruler in centimeters and study it. That is the best way to learn the marvelous metric system.
