## 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 121 centimeters into decimeters we have to multiply 121 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

121 cm → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 121 cm × 0.1 dm

L_{(dm)} = 12.1 dm

The final result is:

121 cm → 12.1 dm

We conclude that **121 centimeters is equivalent to 12.1 decimeters**:

121 centimeters = 12.1 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.082644628099174 × 121 centimeters**.

Another way is saying that *121 centimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.082644628099174 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **one hundred twenty-one centimeters is approximately twelve point one decimeters**:

121 cm ≅ 12.1 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero eight three times one hundred twenty-one centimeters*.
