## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to yards is 0.10936132983377, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.10936132983377 yards:

1 dm = 0.10936132983377 yd

To convert 42.2 decimeters into yards we have to multiply 42.2 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to yards. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.10936132983377 yd

42.2 dm → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 42.2 dm × 0.10936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 4.6150481189851 yd

The final result is:

42.2 dm → 4.6150481189851 yd

We conclude that 42.2 decimeters is equivalent to 4.6150481189851 yards:

42.2 decimeters = 4.6150481189851 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 0.21668246445498 × 42.2 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 42.2 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.21668246445498 yards.

## Approximate result

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

42.2 dm ≅ 4.615 yd

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