## 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 283.8 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 283.8 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

283.8 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 283.8 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 28.38 dm

The final result is:

283.8 cm → 28.38 dm

We conclude that **283.8 centimeters is equivalent to 28.38 decimeters**:

283.8 centimeters = 28.38 decimeters
