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 225 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 225 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

225 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 225 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 22.5 dm

The final result is:

225 cm → 22.5 dm

We conclude that 225 centimeters is equivalent to 22.5 decimeters:

225 centimeters = 22.5 decimeters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.044444444444444 × 225 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 225 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.044444444444444 decimeters.

Approximate result

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

225 cm ≅ 22.5 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero four four times two hundred twenty-five centimeters.
