## 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 496 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 496 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

496 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 496 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 49.6 dm

The final result is:

496 cm → 49.6 dm

We conclude that 496 centimeters is equivalent to 49.6 decimeters:

496 centimeters = 49.6 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.020161290322581 × 496 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 496 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.020161290322581 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

496 cm ≅ 49.6 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero two times four hundred ninety-six centimeters.
