## Conversion formula

How to convert 116 centimeters to decimeters?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{cm}=0.1\mathrm{dm}$

We can set up a proportion to solve for the number of decimeters.

$\frac{1\mathrm{cm}}{116\mathrm{cm}}=\frac{0.1\mathrm{dm}}{x\mathrm{dm}}$Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{116\mathrm{cm}}{1\mathrm{cm}}*0.1\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=11.600000000000001\mathrm{dm}$Conclusion: $116\mathrm{cm}=11.600000000000001\mathrm{dm}$

## Conversion in the opposite direction
