## 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 975 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 975 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

975 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 975 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 97.5 dm

The final result is:

975 cm → 97.5 dm

We conclude that **975 centimeters is equivalent to 97.5 decimeters**:

975 centimeters = 97.5 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.01025641025641 × 975 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *975 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.01025641025641 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **nine hundred seventy-five centimeters is approximately ninety-seven point five decimeters**:

975 cm ≅ 97.5 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero one times nine hundred seventy-five centimeters*.
