## 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 160 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 160 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

160 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 160 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 1600 dm

The final result is:

160 m → 1600 dm

We conclude that 160 meters is equivalent to 1600 decimeters:

160 meters = 1600 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.000625 × 160 meters.

Another way is saying that 160 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.000625 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

160 m ≅ 1600 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero one times one hundred sixty meters.
