## 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*.
