## 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 13.8 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 13.8 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

13.8 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 13.8 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 138 dm

The final result is:

13.8 m → 138 dm

We conclude that 13.8 meters is equivalent to 138 decimeters:

13.8 meters = 138 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.0072463768115942 × 13.8 meters.

Another way is saying that 13.8 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0072463768115942 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

13.8 m ≅ 138 dm

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