## 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 55 decimeters into yards we have to multiply 55 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

55 dm → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 55 dm × 0.10936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 6.0148731408574 yd

The final result is:

55 dm → 6.0148731408574 yd

We conclude that 55 decimeters is equivalent to 6.0148731408574 yards:

55 decimeters = 6.0148731408574 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 0.16625454545455 × 55 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 55 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.16625454545455 yards.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that fifty-five decimeters is approximately six point zero one five yards:

55 dm ≅ 6.015 yd

An alternative is also that one yard is approximately zero point one six six times fifty-five decimeters.
