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 502 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 502 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

502 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 502 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 50.2 dm

The final result is:

502 cm → 50.2 dm

We conclude that 502 centimeters is equivalent to 50.2 decimeters:

502 centimeters = 50.2 decimeters

Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.0199203187251 × 502 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 502 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0199203187251 decimeters.

Approximate result

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

502 cm ≅ 50.2 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero two times five hundred two centimeters.
