## 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 48 decimeters into yards we have to multiply 48 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

48 dm → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 48 dm × 0.10936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 5.249343832021 yd

The final result is:

48 dm → 5.249343832021 yd

We conclude that 48 decimeters is equivalent to 5.249343832021 yards:

48 decimeters = 5.249343832021 yards

## Alternative conversion

Another way is saying that 48 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.1905 yards.

## Approximate result

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

48 dm ≅ 5.249 yd

An alternative is also that one yard is approximately zero point one nine one times forty-eight decimeters.
