## 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 188 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 188 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

188 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 188 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 1880 dm

The final result is:

188 m → 1880 dm

We conclude that 188 meters is equivalent to 1880 decimeters:

188 meters = 1880 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.00053191489361702 × 188 meters.

Another way is saying that 188 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00053191489361702 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

188 m ≅ 1880 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero one times one hundred eighty-eight meters.
