## How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

### Fórmula de Centímetros para Decímetros

dm = cm / 10

Exemplo: 30 Centímetros em Decímetros:

dm = cm / 10

dm = 30 / 10

dm = 0,3

### Fórmula de Decímetros para Centímetros

cm = dm * 10

Exemplo: 0,5 Decímetro em Centímetros:

cm = dm * 10

cm = 0,5 * 10

cm = 5

## Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

### 100 Centimeters are equal to how many Decimeter

Considering that 1 Centimeter is equivalent to 0.1 Decimeter, you can use a rule of three to obtain that 100 Centimeters equal 10 Decimeters.

1 cm - 0,1 dm

100 cm - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x cm = 10 dmcm

x = 10 dm

### 100 Decimeter equals how many Centimeters?

If every 1 Decimeter we have 10 Centimeters, just multiply the amount of Decimeter (100) by 10, so you will get that 100 dm is equivalent to 1000 cm. Observe the calculation below:

cm = dm * 10

cm = 100 * 10

cm = 1000
