## 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 457 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 457 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

457 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 457 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 45.7 dm

The final result is:

457 cm → 45.7 dm

We conclude that **457 centimeters is equivalent to 45.7 decimeters**:

457 centimeters = 45.7 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.021881838074398 × 457 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *457 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.021881838074398 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

457 cm ≅ 45.7 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero two two times four hundred fifty-seven centimeters*.
