## 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 84 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 84 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

84 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 84 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 8.4 dm

The final result is:

84 cm → 8.4 dm

We conclude that **84 centimeters is equivalent to 8.4 decimeters**:

84 centimeters = 8.4 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.11904761904762 × 84 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *84 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.11904761904762 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **eighty-four centimeters is approximately eight point four decimeters**:

84 cm ≅ 8.4 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point one one nine times eighty-four centimeters*.
