## 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 15.2 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 15.2 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

15.2 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 15.2 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 152 dm

The final result is:

15.2 m → 152 dm

We conclude that **15.2 meters is equivalent to 152 decimeters**:

15.2 meters = 152 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.0065789473684211 × 15.2 meters**.

Another way is saying that *15.2 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0065789473684211 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **fifteen point two meters is approximately one hundred fifty-two decimeters**:

15.2 m ≅ 152 dm

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