## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to millimeters is 100, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 100 millimeters:

1 dm = 100 mm

To convert 10.2 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 10.2 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 100 mm

10.2 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 10.2 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 1020 mm

The final result is:

10.2 dm → 1020 mm

We conclude that 10.2 decimeters is equivalent to 1020 millimeters:

10.2 decimeters = 1020 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 0.00098039215686275 × 10.2 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 10.2 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00098039215686275 millimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that ten point two decimeters is approximately one thousand twenty millimeters:

10.2 dm ≅ 1020 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero point zero zero one times ten point two decimeters.
