In order to convert a value from millimeters to decimeters (from mm to dm) simply type the number of millimeters to be converted to decimeters and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from millimeters to decimeters is:

X millimeters * cf = Y decimeters

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

Example
Let's suppose that you have a value of length of 567 millimeters and want to express it in decimeters.
567 mm = (567 × 0.01) dm
567 mm = 5.67 dm

Conversion factor
