## 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 365 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 365 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

365 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 365 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 36.5 dm

The final result is:

365 cm → 36.5 dm

We conclude that 365 centimeters is equivalent to 36.5 decimeters:

365 centimeters = 36.5 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.027397260273973 × 365 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 365 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.027397260273973 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

365 cm ≅ 36.5 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero two seven times three hundred sixty-five centimeters.
