## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers to decimeters is 10000, which means that 1 kilometer is equal to 10000 decimeters:

1 km = 10000 dm

To convert 100 kilometers into decimeters we have to multiply 100 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from kilometers to decimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km → 10000 dm

100 km → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 100 km × 10000 dm

L(dm) = 1000000 dm

The final result is:

100 km → 1000000 dm

We conclude that 100 kilometers is equivalent to 1000000 decimeters:

100 kilometers = 1000000 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 1.0E-6 × 100 kilometers.

Another way is saying that 100 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 1.0E-6 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred kilometers is approximately one million decimeters:

100 km ≅ 1000000 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero times one hundred kilometers.
