## 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 21.7 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 21.7 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

21.7 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 21.7 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 2170 mm

The final result is:

21.7 dm → 2170 mm

We conclude that 21.7 decimeters is equivalent to 2170 millimeters:

21.7 decimeters = 2170 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 0.00046082949308756 × 21.7 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 21.7 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00046082949308756 millimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that twenty-one point seven decimeters is approximately two thousand one hundred seventy millimeters:

21.7 dm ≅ 2170 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero times twenty-one point seven decimeters.
