## 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 137 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 137 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

137 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 137 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 13.7 dm

The final result is:

137 cm → 13.7 dm

We conclude that 137 centimeters is equivalent to 13.7 decimeters:

137 centimeters = 13.7 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.072992700729927 × 137 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 137 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.072992700729927 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

137 cm ≅ 13.7 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero seven three times one hundred thirty-seven centimeters.
