## 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 362 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 362 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

362 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 362 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 36.2 dm

The final result is:

362 cm → 36.2 dm

We conclude that 362 centimeters is equivalent to 36.2 decimeters:

362 centimeters = 36.2 decimeters ## Alternative conversion
