## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to millimeters is 100, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 100 millimeters:

1 dm = 100 mm

To convert 15 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 15 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 100 mm

15 dm → L_{(mm)}

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

L_{(mm)} = 15 dm × 100 mm

L_{(mm)} = 1500 mm

The final result is:

15 dm → 1500 mm

We conclude that **15 decimeters is equivalent to 1500 millimeters**:

15 decimeters = 1500 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 millimeter is equal to 0.00066666666666667 × 15 decimeters**.

Another way is saying that *15 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00066666666666667 millimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **fifteen decimeters is approximately one thousand five hundred millimeters**:

15 dm ≅ 1500 mm

An alternative is also that *one millimeter is approximately zero point zero zero one times fifteen decimeters*.
