## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to kilometers is 0.0001, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.0001 kilometers:

1 dm = 0.0001 km

To convert 896 decimeters into kilometers we have to multiply 896 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to kilometers. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.0001 km

896 dm → L(km)

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

L(km) = 896 dm × 0.0001 km

L(km) = 0.0896 km

The final result is:

896 dm → 0.0896 km

We conclude that 896 decimeters is equivalent to 0.0896 kilometers:

896 decimeters = 0.0896 kilometers

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 11.160714285714 × 896 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 896 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 11.160714285714 kilometers.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that eight hundred ninety-six decimeters is approximately zero point zero nine kilometers:

896 dm ≅ 0.09 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately eleven point one six one times eight hundred ninety-six decimeters.
