## Conversion formula

How to convert 865 decimeters to kilometers?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{dm}=0.0001\mathrm{km}$

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

$\frac{1\mathrm{dm}}{865\mathrm{dm}}=\frac{0.0001\mathrm{km}}{x\mathrm{km}}$Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{km}=\frac{865\mathrm{dm}}{1\mathrm{dm}}*0.0001\mathrm{km}\to x\mathrm{km}=0.08650000000000001\mathrm{km}$Conclusion: $865\mathrm{dm}=0.08650000000000001\mathrm{km}$
