## 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 101 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 101 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

101 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 101 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 10100 mm

The final result is:

101 dm → 10100 mm

We conclude that 101 decimeters is equivalent to 10100 millimeters:

101 decimeters = 10100 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 9.9009900990099E-5 × 101 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 101 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 9.9009900990099E-5 millimeters.

## Approximate result

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

101 dm ≅ 10100 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero times one hundred one decimeters.
