Let's take a closer look at the conversion formulas so that you can do these conversions yourself with a calculator or with an old-fashioned pencil and paper.

The formula to convert from dL to L is:

L = dL x 0.1

The formula to convert from L to dL is:

dL = L x 10

Next, let's look at some examples showing the work and calculations that are involved in converting from deciliters to liters (dL to L) or converting from liters to deciliters (L to dL).

Task: Convert 12.5 deciliters to liters (show work)Formula:dL x 0.1 = LCalculations:12.5 dL x 0.1 = 1.25 LResult:12.5 dL is equal to 1.25 L

Task: Convert 4 liters to deciliters (show work)Formula:L x 10 = dLCalculations:4 L x 10 = 40 dLResult:4 L is equal to 40 dL
