## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to kilometers is 0.0001, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.0001 kilometers:

1 dm = 0.0001 km

To convert 13 decimeters into kilometers we have to multiply 13 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to kilometers. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.0001 km

13 dm → L(km)

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

L(km) = 13 dm × 0.0001 km

L(km) = 0.0013 km

The final result is:

13 dm → 0.0013 km

We conclude that 13 decimeters is equivalent to 0.0013 kilometers:

13 decimeters = 0.0013 kilometers

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 kilometer is equal to 769.23076923077 × 13 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 13 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 769.23076923077 kilometers.

## Approximate result

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

13 dm ≅ 0.001 km

An alternative is also that one kilometer is approximately seven hundred sixty-nine point two three one times thirteen decimeters.
