## 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 124 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 124 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

124 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 124 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 12.4 dm

The final result is:

124 cm → 12.4 dm

We conclude that 124 centimeters is equivalent to 12.4 decimeters:

124 centimeters = 12.4 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.080645161290323 × 124 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 124 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.080645161290323 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

124 cm ≅ 12.4 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero eight one times one hundred twenty-four centimeters.
