## 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 896 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 896 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

896 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 896 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 89600 mm

The final result is:

896 dm → 89600 mm

We conclude that 896 decimeters is equivalent to 89600 millimeters:

896 decimeters = 89600 millimeters

## Alternative conversion
