## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from meters to decimeters is 10, which means that 1 meter is equal to 10 decimeters:

1 m = 10 dm

To convert 0.7 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 0.7 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from meters to decimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 m → 10 dm

0.7 m → L(dm)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in decimeters:

L(dm) = 0.7 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 7 dm

The final result is:

0.7 m → 7 dm

We conclude that 0.7 meters is equivalent to 7 decimeters:

0.7 meters = 7 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.14285714285714 × 0.7 meters.

Another way is saying that 0.7 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.14285714285714 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that zero point seven meters is approximately seven decimeters:

0.7 m ≅ 7 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point one four three times zero point seven meters.
