## 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 85.8 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 85.8 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

85.8 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 85.8 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 8.58 dm

The final result is:

85.8 cm → 8.58 dm

We conclude that **85.8 centimeters is equivalent to 8.58 decimeters**:

85.8 centimeters = 8.58 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.11655011655012 × 85.8 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *85.8 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.11655011655012 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

85.8 cm ≅ 8.58 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point one one seven times eighty-five point eight centimeters*.
