## 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 142.3 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 142.3 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

142.3 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 142.3 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 14.23 dm

The final result is:

142.3 cm → 14.23 dm

We conclude that 142.3 centimeters is equivalent to 14.23 decimeters:

142.3 centimeters = 14.23 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.070274068868587 × 142.3 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 142.3 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.070274068868587 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

142.3 cm ≅ 14.23 dm

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