## 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 428 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 428 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

428 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 428 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 42.8 dm

The final result is:

428 cm → 42.8 dm

We conclude that **428 centimeters is equivalent to 42.8 decimeters**:

428 centimeters = 42.8 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.023364485981308 × 428 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *428 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.023364485981308 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **four hundred twenty-eight centimeters is approximately forty-two point eight decimeters**:

428 cm ≅ 42.8 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero two three times four hundred twenty-eight centimeters*.
