## 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 13.2 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 13.2 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

13.2 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 13.2 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 132 dm

The final result is:

13.2 m → 132 dm

We conclude that 13.2 meters is equivalent to 132 decimeters:

13.2 meters = 132 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.0075757575757576 × 13.2 meters.

Another way is saying that 13.2 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0075757575757576 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

13.2 m ≅ 132 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero eight times thirteen point two meters.
