## 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 162 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 162 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

162 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 162 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 1620 dm

The final result is:

162 m → 1620 dm

We conclude that **162 meters is equivalent to 1620 decimeters**:

162 meters = 1620 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.00061728395061728 × 162 meters**.

Another way is saying that *162 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00061728395061728 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

162 m ≅ 1620 dm

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