## 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 709 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 709 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

709 cm → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 709 cm × 0.1 dm

L(dm) = 70.9 dm

The final result is:

709 cm → 70.9 dm

We conclude that 709 centimeters is equivalent to 70.9 decimeters:

709 centimeters = 70.9 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.01410437235543 × 709 centimeters.

Another way is saying that 709 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.01410437235543 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

709 cm ≅ 70.9 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero one four times seven hundred nine centimeters.
