## 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 159 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 159 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

159 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 159 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 1590 dm

The final result is:

159 m → 1590 dm

We conclude that **159 meters is equivalent to 1590 decimeters**:

159 meters = 1590 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.00062893081761006 × 159 meters**.

Another way is saying that *159 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00062893081761006 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

159 m ≅ 1590 dm

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