## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to millimeters is 100, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 100 millimeters:

1 dm = 100 mm

To convert 3.6 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 3.6 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 100 mm

3.6 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 3.6 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 360 mm

The final result is:

3.6 dm → 360 mm

We conclude that 3.6 decimeters is equivalent to 360 millimeters:

3.6 decimeters = 360 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 0.0027777777777778 × 3.6 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 3.6 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0027777777777778 millimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that three point six decimeters is approximately three hundred sixty millimeters:

3.6 dm ≅ 360 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero point zero zero three times three point six decimeters.
