## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to yards is 0.10936132983377, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.10936132983377 yards:

1 dm = 0.10936132983377 yd

To convert 0.5 decimeters into yards we have to multiply 0.5 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to yards. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.10936132983377 yd

0.5 dm → L(yd)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in yards:

L(yd) = 0.5 dm × 0.10936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 0.054680664916885 yd

The final result is:

0.5 dm → 0.054680664916885 yd

We conclude that 0.5 decimeters is equivalent to 0.054680664916885 yards:

0.5 decimeters = 0.054680664916885 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 18.288 × 0.5 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 0.5 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 18.288 yards.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that zero point five decimeters is approximately zero point zero five five yards:

0.5 dm ≅ 0.055 yd

An alternative is also that one yard is approximately eighteen point two eight eight times zero point five decimeters.
