## 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 1297 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 1297 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

1297 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 1297 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 129700 mm

The final result is:

1297 dm → 129700 mm

We conclude that 1297 decimeters is equivalent to 129700 millimeters:

1297 decimeters = 129700 millimeters
