i wrote "εκατοστόμετρο", which was marked wrong, why?

It's not wrong, but it probebly wasn't originally added, since εκατοστό is way more common in written and spoken Greek. I just added it, thank you. ^.^

What is the difference between το μήκος and το μάκρος?

My Greek builder friends always say πόντος : https://screenshots.firefox.com/RqxAUtOiCVbyPrBi/www.duolingo.com Incidentally I am off again Thursday to the Greek island for a fortnight - see you when I get back mid-March.

To my Greek builder friends one centimetre is 'ενας πόντος' , and the Oxford Greek Dictionary agrees. But Duo still marks it wrong, as I noted below ...

Hi, sorry just saw this after so long. Yes, I've added: το μήκος είναι ένας πόντος.
