## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from centimeters to decimeters is 0.1, which means that 1 centimeter is equal to 0.1 decimeters:

1 cm = 0.1 dm

To convert 10.7 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 10.7 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from centimeters to decimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 cm → 0.1 dm

10.7 cm → L_{(dm)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length *L* in decimeters:

L_{(dm)} = 10.7 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 1.07 dm

The final result is:

10.7 cm → 1.07 dm

We conclude that **10.7 centimeters is equivalent to 1.07 decimeters**:

10.7 centimeters = 1.07 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.93457943925234 × 10.7 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *10.7 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.93457943925234 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **ten point seven centimeters is approximately one point zero seven decimeters**:

10.7 cm ≅ 1.07 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point nine three five times ten point seven centimeters*.
