## 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 212 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 212 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

212 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 212 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 21.2 dm

The final result is:

212 cm → 21.2 dm

We conclude that **212 centimeters is equivalent to 21.2 decimeters**:

212 centimeters = 21.2 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.047169811320755 × 212 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *212 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.047169811320755 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

212 cm ≅ 21.2 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero four seven times two hundred twelve centimeters*.
