## 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 1.3 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 1.3 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

1.3 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 1.3 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 13 dm

The final result is:

1.3 m → 13 dm

We conclude that 1.3 meters is equivalent to 13 decimeters:

1.3 meters = 13 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.076923076923077 × 1.3 meters.

Another way is saying that 1.3 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.076923076923077 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

1.3 m ≅ 13 dm

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