## 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 170 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 170 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

170 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 170 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 1700 dm

The final result is:

170 m → 1700 dm

We conclude that **170 meters is equivalent to 1700 decimeters**:

170 meters = 1700 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.00058823529411765 × 170 meters**.

Another way is saying that *170 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00058823529411765 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

170 m ≅ 1700 dm

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