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 248 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 248 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

248 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 248 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 24.8 dm

The final result is:

248 cm → 24.8 dm

We conclude that 248 centimeters is equivalent to 24.8 decimeters:

248 centimeters = 24.8 decimeters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.040322580645161 × 248 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 248 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.040322580645161 decimeters.

Approximate result

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

248 cm ≅ 24.8 dm

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