## 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 24.4 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 24.4 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

24.4 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 24.4 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 2.44 dm

The final result is:

24.4 cm → 2.44 dm

We conclude that 24.4 centimeters is equivalent to 2.44 decimeters:

24.4 centimeters = 2.44 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.40983606557377 × 24.4 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 24.4 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.40983606557377 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

24.4 cm ≅ 2.44 dm

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