## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to meters is 0.1, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.1 meters:

1 dm = 0.1 m

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

1 dm → 0.1 m

13 dm → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 13 dm × 0.1 m

L_{(m)} = 1.3 m

The final result is:

13 dm → 1.3 m

We conclude that **13 decimeters is equivalent to 1.3 meters**:

13 decimeters = 1.3 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 0.76923076923077 × 13 decimeters**.

Another way is saying that *13 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.76923076923077 meters*.

## Approximate result

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

13 dm ≅ 1.3 m

An alternative is also that *one meter is approximately zero point seven six nine times thirteen decimeters*.
