## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to yards is 0.10936132983377, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.10936132983377 yards:

1 dm = 0.10936132983377 yd

To convert 8 decimeters into yards we have to multiply 8 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to yards. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.10936132983377 yd

8 dm → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 8 dm × 0.10936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 0.87489063867017 yd

The final result is:

8 dm → 0.87489063867017 yd

We conclude that 8 decimeters is equivalent to 0.87489063867017 yards:

8 decimeters = 0.87489063867017 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 1.143 × 8 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 8 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 1.143 yards.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that eight decimeters is approximately zero point eight seven five yards:

8 dm ≅ 0.875 yd

An alternative is also that one yard is approximately one point one four three times eight decimeters.
