## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from deciliters to liters is 0.1, which means that 1 deciliter is equal to 0.1 liters:

1 dL = 0.1 L

To convert 4 deciliters into liters we have to multiply 4 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from deciliters to liters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dL → 0.1 L

4 dL → V(L)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume V in liters:

V(L) = 4 dL × 0.1 L

V(L) = 0.4 L

The final result is:

4 dL → 0.4 L

We conclude that 4 deciliters is equivalent to 0.4 liters:

4 deciliters = 0.4 liters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 liter is equal to 2.5 × 4 deciliters.

Another way is saying that 4 deciliters is equal to 1 ÷ 2.5 liters.

## Approximate result

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

4 dL ≅ 0.4 L

An alternative is also that one liter is approximately two point five times four deciliters.
