## 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 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 1 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 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 1 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 10 dm

The final result is:

1 m → 10 dm

We conclude that **1 meters is equivalent to 10 decimeters**:

1 meters = 10 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.1 × 1 meters**.

Another way is saying that *1 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.1 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

1 m ≅ 10 dm

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