## 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 867 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 867 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

867 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 867 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 86.7 dm

The final result is:

867 cm → 86.7 dm

We conclude that **867 centimeters is equivalent to 86.7 decimeters**:

867 centimeters = 86.7 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.011534025374856 × 867 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *867 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.011534025374856 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

867 cm ≅ 86.7 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero one two times eight hundred sixty-seven centimeters*.
