## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from deciliters to liters is 0.1, which means that 1 deciliter is equal to 0.1 liters:

1 dL = 0.1 L

To convert 16 deciliters into liters we have to multiply 16 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from deciliters to liters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dL → 0.1 L

16 dL → V(L)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume V in liters:

V(L) = 16 dL × 0.1 L

V(L) = 1.6 L

The final result is:

16 dL → 1.6 L

We conclude that 16 deciliters is equivalent to 1.6 liters:

16 deciliters = 1.6 liters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 liter is equal to 0.625 × 16 deciliters.

Another way is saying that 16 deciliters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.625 liters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that sixteen deciliters is approximately one point six liters:

16 dL ≅ 1.6 L

An alternative is also that one liter is approximately zero point six two five times sixteen deciliters.
