## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to yards is 0.10936132983377, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.10936132983377 yards:

1 dm = 0.10936132983377 yd

To convert 897 decimeters into yards we have to multiply 897 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to yards. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.10936132983377 yd

897 dm → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 897 dm × 0.10936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 98.097112860892 yd

The final result is:

897 dm → 98.097112860892 yd
