## 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 4.6 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 4.6 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

4.6 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 4.6 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 0.46 dm

The final result is:

4.6 cm → 0.46 dm

We conclude that **4.6 centimeters is equivalent to 0.46 decimeters**:

4.6 centimeters = 0.46 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 2.1739130434783 × 4.6 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *4.6 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 2.1739130434783 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **four point six centimeters is approximately zero point four six decimeters**:

4.6 cm ≅ 0.46 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately two point one seven four times four point six centimeters*.
