## 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 237 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 237 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

237 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 237 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 23.7 dm

The final result is:

237 cm → 23.7 dm

We conclude that 237 centimeters is equivalent to 23.7 decimeters:

237 centimeters = 23.7 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.042194092827004 × 237 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 237 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.042194092827004 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

237 cm ≅ 23.7 dm

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