## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to centimeters is 10, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 10 centimeters:

1 dm = 10 cm

To convert 374 decimeters into centimeters we have to multiply 374 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to centimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 10 cm

374 dm → L(cm)

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

L(cm) = 374 dm × 10 cm

L(cm) = 3740 cm

The final result is:

374 dm → 3740 cm

We conclude that 374 decimeters is equivalent to 3740 centimeters:

374 decimeters = 3740 centimeters
