## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to millimeters is 100, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 100 millimeters:

1 dm = 100 mm

To convert 852 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 852 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to millimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 100 mm

852 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 852 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 85200 mm

The final result is:

852 dm → 85200 mm

We conclude that 852 decimeters is equivalent to 85200 millimeters:

852 decimeters = 85200 millimeters

## Alternative conversion
