## 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 144 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 144 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

144 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 144 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 14.4 dm

The final result is:

144 cm → 14.4 dm

We conclude that 144 centimeters is equivalent to 14.4 decimeters:

144 centimeters = 14.4 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.069444444444444 × 144 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 144 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.069444444444444 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

144 cm ≅ 14.4 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero six nine times one hundred forty-four centimeters.
