2 centimeters in decimeters

Conversion

2 centimeters is equivalent to 0.2 decimeters.[1]

Conversion formula How to convert 2 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.

$1 ⁢ cm 2 ⁢ cm = 0.1 ⁢ dm x ⁢ dm$

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

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{2\mathrm{cm}}{1\mathrm{cm}}*0.1\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=0.2\mathrm{dm}$

Conclusion: $2 ⁢ cm = 0.2 ⁢ dm$

Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that 1 decimeter is equal to 5 times 2 centimeters.

It can also be expressed as: 2 centimeters is equal to $\frac{1}{5}$ decimeters.

Approximation

An approximate numerical result would be: two centimeters is about zero decimeters, or alternatively, a decimeter is about zero times two centimeters.
