## 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 34.8 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 34.8 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

34.8 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 34.8 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 3.48 dm

The final result is:

34.8 cm → 3.48 dm

We conclude that 34.8 centimeters is equivalent to 3.48 decimeters:

34.8 centimeters = 3.48 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.28735632183908 × 34.8 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 34.8 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.28735632183908 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

34.8 cm ≅ 3.48 dm

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