## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to centimeters is 10, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 10 centimeters:

1 dm = 10 cm

To convert 13 decimeters into centimeters we have to multiply 13 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to centimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 10 cm

13 dm → L_{(cm)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length *L* in centimeters:

L_{(cm)} = 13 dm × 10 cm

L_{(cm)} = 130 cm

The final result is:

13 dm → 130 cm

We conclude that **13 decimeters is equivalent to 130 centimeters**:

13 decimeters = 130 centimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 centimeter is equal to 0.0076923076923077 × 13 decimeters**.
