In order to answer this question, we need to know that 1 mm is approximately 0.0393701 inches. Therefore, to convert a distance in mm into a distance in inches, we can simply take the distance in mm and multiply it by 0.0393701 which will then provide us with the distance in inches. In this particular case, we can mathematically calculate 5 mm in inches by the expression,

5 mm = 5 * 0.0393701 inches = 0.1968505 inches

or approximately 0.20 inches.

As seen, conversion between a distance in mm to inches is easy to do once we know the conversion factor of 0.0393701 inches/mm.

I hope that this answers your question and allows you to more easily convert between distances in mm to distances to inches in the future. Good luck!
