## 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 14 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 14 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

14 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 14 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 140 dm

The final result is:

14 m → 140 dm

We conclude that **14 meters is equivalent to 140 decimeters**:

14 meters = 140 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.0071428571428571 × 14 meters**.

Another way is saying that *14 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0071428571428571 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

14 m ≅ 140 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero seven times fourteen meters*.
