### How to Convert Decimeter to Yards?

To convert Decimeter to Yards, simply divide the Decimeter value by 9.144.

The formula used to calculate Decimeter to Yards -

**d**_{(dm)} = **d**_{(yd)} / 9.144

The distance *d* in Yards (yd) is equal to the distance *d* in Decimeters (dm) divided by 9.144.

### How many Yards in a Decimeter

In simple terms, 1 dm is equal to 0.109361329834 yd.

The formula used is 1/9.144 = 0.109361329834(yd)

### How many Decimeters in a Yard

1 Yard is equal to 9.144 Decimeters. So we can also say that there are 9.144 Decimeters in a Yard.
