## 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 99 decimeters into millimeters we have to multiply 99 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

99 dm → L(mm)

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

L(mm) = 99 dm × 100 mm

L(mm) = 9900 mm

The final result is:

99 dm → 9900 mm

We conclude that 99 decimeters is equivalent to 9900 millimeters:

99 decimeters = 9900 millimeters
