## Decimeters to yards conversion factor and formulas

Formula

The conversion factor between decimeters and yards is 9.144. This represents the ratio of decimeters per one yard. To calculate the value in yards, we can either divide by the conversion factor or multiply by its inverse.

### Division

To convert from decimeters to yards, divide decimeters by 9.144.
The formula is expressed as:
dm ÷ 9.144 = yd

### Multiplication

Alternatively we can multiply by the inverse conversion factor to get the same result.
The inverse of 9.144 is 1/9.144 or 0.109. To convert from decimeters to yards, multiply decimeters by 0.109.
The formula is expressed as:
dm × 0.109 = yd

Converting decimeters to yards is a conversion between units from separate unit systems - decimeters are metric (SI) defined units while yards are US Customary / UK Imperial .

SI Unit

Within the SI (metric) system of measurement, the decimeter is officially defined as one tenth (1/10) of a meter. The decimeter is not widely used in everyday situations. Internationally it is spelled 'decimetre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'decimeter'. The symbol for decimeters is dm.

Customary/Imperial Unit

The yard is a measure of length between two points within the US Customary and British Imperial measurement systems. The official length of a yard (international yard) is defined as 0.9144 meters. A yard is equal to three feet or thirty-six inches in the US and Great Britain. A half yard is eighteen inches while a quarter yard is nine inches. Yards are commonly used when measuring fabric and the yardstick is a common measuring implement in these nations. In the US, the yard is most frequently associated with American football as 100 yards are marked on the field and its measurement is integral to play.
