## 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 721 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 721 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

721 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 721 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 72.1 dm

The final result is:

721 cm → 72.1 dm

We conclude that **721 centimeters is equivalent to 72.1 decimeters**:

721 centimeters = 72.1 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.013869625520111 × 721 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *721 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.013869625520111 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

721 cm ≅ 72.1 dm

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