## 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 149 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 149 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

149 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 149 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 1490 dm

The final result is:

149 m → 1490 dm

We conclude that 149 meters is equivalent to 1490 decimeters:

149 meters = 1490 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.00067114093959732 × 149 meters.

Another way is saying that 149 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00067114093959732 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred forty-nine meters is approximately one thousand four hundred ninety decimeters:

149 m ≅ 1490 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero one times one hundred forty-nine meters.
