## 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 13.7 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 13.7 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

13.7 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 13.7 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 1370 mm

The final result is:

13.7 dm → 1370 mm

We conclude that 13.7 decimeters is equivalent to 1370 millimeters:

13.7 decimeters = 1370 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 0.00072992700729927 × 13.7 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 13.7 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00072992700729927 millimeters.

## Approximate result

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

13.7 dm ≅ 1370 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero point zero zero one times thirteen point seven decimeters.
