## 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 29.2 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 29.2 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

29.2 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 29.2 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 2.92 dm

The final result is:

29.2 cm → 2.92 dm

We conclude that **29.2 centimeters is equivalent to 2.92 decimeters**:

29.2 centimeters = 2.92 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.34246575342466 × 29.2 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *29.2 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.34246575342466 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

29.2 cm ≅ 2.92 dm

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