## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from deciliters to liters is 0.1, which means that 1 deciliter is equal to 0.1 liters:

1 dL = 0.1 L

To convert 50 deciliters into liters we have to multiply 50 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from deciliters to liters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dL → 0.1 L

50 dL → V(L)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume V in liters:

V(L) = 50 dL × 0.1 L

V(L) = 5 L

The final result is:

50 dL → 5 L

We conclude that 50 deciliters is equivalent to 5 liters:

50 deciliters = 5 liters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 liter is equal to 0.2 × 50 deciliters.

Another way is saying that 50 deciliters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.2 liters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that fifty deciliters is approximately five liters:

50 dL ≅ 5 L

An alternative is also that one liter is approximately zero point two times fifty deciliters.
