## 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 696.9 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 696.9 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

696.9 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 696.9 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 69.69 dm

The final result is:

696.9 cm → 69.69 dm

We conclude that 696.9 centimeters is equivalent to 69.69 decimeters:

696.9 centimeters = 69.69 decimeters
