## Conversion formula

How to convert 847 yards to decimeters?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{yd}=9.144\mathrm{dm}$

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

$\frac{1\mathrm{yd}}{847\mathrm{yd}}=\frac{9.144\mathrm{dm}}{x\mathrm{dm}}$Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{847\mathrm{yd}}{1\mathrm{yd}}*9.144\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=7744.968\mathrm{dm}$Conclusion: $847\mathrm{yd}=7744.968\mathrm{dm}$

## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that **1 decimeter is equal to 0.000129116091893472 times 847 yards**.
