## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to centimeters is 10, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 10 centimeters:

1 dm = 10 cm

To convert 600 decimeters into centimeters we have to multiply 600 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to centimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 10 cm

600 dm → L(cm)

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

L(cm) = 600 dm × 10 cm

L(cm) = 6000 cm

The final result is:

600 dm → 6000 cm

We conclude that 600 decimeters is equivalent to 6000 centimeters:

600 decimeters = 6000 centimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 centimeter is equal to 0.00016666666666667 × 600 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 600 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00016666666666667 centimeters.

## Approximate result

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

600 dm ≅ 6000 cm

An alternative is also that one centimeter is approximately zero times six hundred decimeters.
