## 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 140 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 140 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

140 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 140 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 14 dm

The final result is:

140 cm → 14 dm

We conclude that **140 centimeters is equivalent to 14 decimeters**:

140 centimeters = 14 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.071428571428571 × 140 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *140 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.071428571428571 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **one hundred forty centimeters is approximately fourteen decimeters**:

140 cm ≅ 14 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero seven one times one hundred forty centimeters*.
