## 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 157.4 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 157.4 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

157.4 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 157.4 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 15.74 dm

The final result is:

157.4 cm → 15.74 dm

We conclude that **157.4 centimeters is equivalent to 15.74 decimeters**:

157.4 centimeters = 15.74 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.063532401524778 × 157.4 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *157.4 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.063532401524778 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

157.4 cm ≅ 15.74 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero six four times one hundred fifty-seven point four centimeters*.
