Conversion Formula

By using the online converter calculator on this page, you can calculate how many decimeters are in 'X' centimeters (X is the number of centimeters you want to convert to decimeters). In order to convert a value from centimeters to decimeters (from cm to dm) simply type the number of centimeters to be converted to decimeters and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from centimeters to decimeters is:

X centimeters * cf = Y decimeters

where
X = the specific value to be converted (in centimeters)
cf = the conversion factor from centimeters to decimeters
Y = the result (in decimeters)

Example
Let's suppose that you have a value of length of 268 centimeters and want to express it in decimeters.
268 cm = (268 × 0.1) dm
268 cm = 26.8 dm

Conversion factor

1 centimeter is equal to 0.1 decimeter
(1 cm = 0.1 dm )
