# 157 centimeters in decimeters

## Conversion

157 centimeters is equivalent to 15.7 decimeters.

## Conversion formula How to convert 157 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.

$1 ⁢ cm 157 ⁢ cm = 0.1 ⁢ dm x ⁢ dm$

Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{157\mathrm{cm}}{1\mathrm{cm}}*0.1\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=15.700000000000001\mathrm{dm}$

Conclusion: $157 ⁢ cm = 15.700000000000001 ⁢ dm$ ## Conversion in the opposite direction
