## 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 480 decimeters into yards we have to multiply 480 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

480 dm → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 480 dm × 0.10936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 52.49343832021 yd

The final result is:

480 dm → 52.49343832021 yd

We conclude that 480 decimeters is equivalent to 52.49343832021 yards:

480 decimeters = 52.49343832021 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 0.01905 × 480 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 480 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.01905 yards.

## Approximate result

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

480 dm ≅ 52.493 yd

An alternative is also that one yard is approximately zero point zero one nine times four hundred eighty decimeters.
