Did you ever try converting Dismil to Acre? I am sure most of you would be highly bewildered by the units and their relationship. Unlike other metric conversions such as Kilometers, Meters, Centimeters, etc. that are easy to convert, Decimal to Acre conversion could be a bit intricate as the concept of Dismil is new to many. Therefore, we have designed this guide in a way that you won’t have to perform big mathematical calculations, yet the units would be converted in the simplest way.

But before hopping on to the conversion process directly, let us understand what Dismil means because I am sure only a few would be aware of it. So, let us start with the definition of Dismil/Decimal first.

What is Decimal/Dismil?

Primarily used as the measuring unit for areas in Bangladesh and India, Decimal was once one of the most popularly used units. More commonly spelled as decimel or Dismil, this unit was finally obsolete after the metrification of units in the mid-20th century. However, that did not stop it from being used in the rural parts of West Bengal and North Bangladesh.

When converted and tallied with other land measurement units, 1 Decimal equals 436 Square Feet and also 40.5057 m2. When measured against a common denominator like Acre, it turns out that 1 Decimal is equal to 1/100 parts of an Acre. This essentially means that only 1/100th of an Acre will be able to fit in a Decimal of space.

Current Use of Decimal

The use of Decimal or dismil has been narrowed in recent times. However, this measurement unit is still used in Bangladesh, East Africa, and some parts of India such as West Bengal, Orissa, Jharkhand, etc.

Units such as Hectare, Acre, and square feet are more popular nowadays. If we talk about India, people mostly opt for measuring land in Bigha, Katha, Gaj, Biswa, Acre, Hectare, etc.

What is Acre?

Similar to Decimal, an Acre is also a unit used for land measurement. But the unit is mainly employed in the US customary and imperial systems. Conventionally, it can be defined as the area of 1 chain by 1 furlong, meaning 66 / 660 feet. This value is equal to 10 Square chains, 43,560 Square Feet, 1/640 of a Square Mile, and 40% of a Hectare.

An Acre has been measured to be precisely 4046.86 square meters based on the Internal Yard and Pound Agreement of 1959. While Acre can sometimes be abbreviated to ac, it is mostly written as ‘Acre’ beside the value.

The history behind Acre is that during the middle ages, 1 Acre of land would be perceived as the area of land that can be ploughed by a group of 8 Oxen. However, it has come a long way from there and is still used as a ruling measure in America and other international British Commonwealth countries.

Countries like Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand have stopped their use for decades now. Consequently, since 2010, even the United Kingdoms have stopped using Acre as a standard measuring unit. However, in most of the countries where Acre is not used as a statute measurement, it can still be legally used for trade, as long as it is used as supplementary information and not necessarily for land registrations.

Current Use of Acre

The Acre is most popularly used in various former and current Commonwealth nations by customs, and in a few, it pursues as a statue measure. These comprise Antigua and Barbuda, American Samoa, the Bahamas, Jamaica, the United States, the United Kingdom, the US Virgin Islands, and more.

In India and Pakistan, the agricultural lands are often measured in Acre while residential plots are mapped in Square Feet in India and Kanal in Pakistan.

What is the Relation between Decimal and Acre?

Both Decimal and Acre are connected to each other in a lot of ways. Not only are they both used as measuring units for a particular land area, but they also have other purposes. However, only the Acre can be used for trade. On top of that, Decimal is a rather obsolete unit of measurement when compared to the still used and popular Acre. Acre is an international measurement that is used in most international countries.


1 Decimal is equivalent to 1/100th of an Acre, or

1 Dismil = 0.01 Acre

Similarly, 1 Acre is equivalent to 100 Decimals.

Such precise and rounded-up values can make for easy calculation. This is one of the reasons why both the units are still quite popularly in use.

How to Convert from Dismil to Acre?

When compared to other units, converting Decimal to Acre can be a bit challenging. There are some steps involved in the conversion. Further mentioned are some important ones.

Firstly, you have to convert the values to a standardized unit, in this case, square feet. Since the value of 1 Decimal in square feet is 435.6 and 1 Acre is 43560 square feet, to calculate Acre from the Decimal, you have to divide the Decimal value in square feet, which the Decimal value in square feet.

1 Decimal is equal to 435.6 Square Feet

1 Acre is equal to 43560 Square Feet

Therefore, 1 Decimal = 435.6/43560 or 0.01 Acre.

Hence, 1 Dismil to Acre is equivalent to 0.01 Acre.

Or an even simpler way to convert Decimal to Ekar would be to multiply the given value of Dismil by 0.01, and you will get the answer in Acre.

Similarly, if you have to convert Acre to Decimal, all you have to do is reverse the calculation. This essentially means you divide the value of 1 Acre in square feet with the value of 1 Decimal in square feet.

1 Acre is equal to 43560 Square Feet

1 Decimal is equal to 435.6 Square Feet

Therefore, 1 Acre in Dismil will be

 43560/435.6 or 100 Decimal in India.

Another easiest way to find the conversion value of these units would be to use SuareYards’ Dismil to Acre calculator. All you need to do is to put the value of Dismil/Decimal in the box and tap on the ‘Convert’ button.

Now that you are familiar with the relationship between the two, let’s have a quick look at the conversion table.

So, as we will scroll down, you will find that the table contains the conversion value of Dismil up to 100 units. But what would you do if you have to convert numbers beyond that or numbers in fractions?

Obviously, you will need a formula. Right? To ensure you don’t have to stress over the calculation and formula, we have derived a simple formula to convert Dismil into Acre.

The Formula & Examples for Converting Decimal into Acre

The conversion uses the basic mathematic concept of division and the unitary method. After you get the standardized values of both in a particular unit, all you have to do is divide the Decimal value with the Acre value and vice versa in the other case.

Or you can simply use this formula:

Acre = Given value of Decimal x 0.01

The resulting value would be in Acre.

Now that you have got the formula, let us understand it clearly with the help of a few examples.

Example 1: Convert 80 Dismil in Acre

Sol: Considering the above formula, we can convert the value of 80 Decimal in Acre as-

Acre = 80 x 0.01 = 0.8.

Therefore, 80 Dismil is equivalent to 0.8 Acre.

Example 2: Convert 500 Dismil in Acre

Sol: We will follow the same formula as above. Hence, 500 Dismil in Acre will be-

Acre = 500 x 0.01 = 5 Acres.

Therefore, 5 Dismil is equivalent to 5 Acres.

Example 3: Convert 45.8 Decimal to Acre

Sol: 45.8 Dismil to Acre = 45.8 x 0.01 Acre = 0.458.

Hence, 45.8 Decimal is equivalent to 0.458 Acre.
