## Conversion formula

How to convert 501 decimeters to millimeters?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{dm}=100\mathrm{mm}$

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

$\frac{1\mathrm{dm}}{501\mathrm{dm}}=\frac{100\mathrm{mm}}{x\mathrm{mm}}$Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{mm}=\frac{501\mathrm{dm}}{1\mathrm{dm}}*100\mathrm{mm}\to x\mathrm{mm}=50100\mathrm{mm}$Conclusion: $501\mathrm{dm}=50100\mathrm{mm}$

## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that **1 millimeter is equal to 1.99600798403194e-05 times 501 decimeters**.

It can also be expressed as: 501 decimeters is equal to $\frac{1}{\mathrm{1.99600798403194e-05}}$ millimeters.
