## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from liters to deciliters is 10, which means that 1 liter is equal to 10 deciliters:

1 L = 10 dL

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

1 L → 10 dL

50 L → V(dL)

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

V(dL) = 50 L × 10 dL

V(dL) = 500 dL

The final result is:

50 L → 500 dL

We conclude that 50 liters is equivalent to 500 deciliters:

50 liters = 500 deciliters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 deciliter is equal to 0.002 × 50 liters.

Another way is saying that 50 liters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.002 deciliters.

## Approximate result

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

50 L ≅ 500 dL

An alternative is also that one deciliter is approximately zero point zero zero two times fifty liters.
