## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to millimeters is 100, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 100 millimeters:

1 dm = 100 mm

To convert 42.1 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 42.1 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 100 mm

42.1 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 42.1 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 4210 mm

The final result is:

42.1 dm → 4210 mm

We conclude that 42.1 decimeters is equivalent to 4210 millimeters:

42.1 decimeters = 4210 millimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 millimeter is equal to 0.0002375296912114 × 42.1 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 42.1 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0002375296912114 millimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that forty-two point one decimeters is approximately four thousand two hundred ten millimeters:

42.1 dm ≅ 4210 mm

An alternative is also that one millimeter is approximately zero times forty-two point one decimeters.
