## 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 101 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 101 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

101 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 101 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 10.1 dm

The final result is:

101 cm → 10.1 dm

We conclude that 101 centimeters is equivalent to 10.1 decimeters:

101 centimeters = 10.1 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.099009900990099 × 101 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 101 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.099009900990099 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

101 cm ≅ 10.1 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero nine nine times one hundred one centimeters.
