## How to Convert millimeter to decimeter

To convert a millimeter measurement(mm) to a decimeter measurement(dm), divide the length by the conversion ratio. Since 1 decimeter is equal to 100 millimeters, you can use this simple formula to convert:

### What is the formula to convert from millimeter to decimeter?

decimeter=mm / 100

### Convert 5 millimeters to Decimeter

5 mm = (5 / 100) = 0.05dm

### Convert 10 millimeters to Decimeter

10 mm = (10 / 100) = 0.1 dm

### Convert 100 millimeters to Decimeter

100 mm = (100 / 100) = 1dm

## Mile

### What is an Mile?

A mile (mi) is a unit of length in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. 1 Mile is 5,280 feet, 1,760 yards, or exactly 1,609.344 meters.

A mile can be abbreviated as dm; for example, 1 Mile can be written as 1dm.

### What is the Mile used for?

The mile is still prevalently used in countries such as the United States (US), United Kingdom (UK), Myanmar, Liberia, and some other countries which are either US or UK territories or have historical ties with either country.

## Decimeter

### What is an Decimeter?

A decimeter is a unit of length in the metric system. The term “Deci” means one-tenth, and therefore decimetre means one-tenth of a meter. Since a meter is 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one Decimeter measures 10 cm.

Decimeter can be abbreviated as dm; for example, 1 Decimeter can be written as 1dm.

### What is the Decimeter used for?

A decimeter is not widely used but is an important unit. In real life, we rarely find measurements written in decimetres. Since one meter is not a very long length, it is easier to use 0.1 m or 0.5 m when the length is shorter than a meter.
