## 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 779 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 779 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

779 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 779 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 77.9 dm

The final result is:

779 cm → 77.9 dm

We conclude that **779 centimeters is equivalent to 77.9 decimeters**:

779 centimeters = 77.9 decimeters
