## 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 2.7 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 2.7 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

2.7 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 2.7 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 27 dm

The final result is:

2.7 m → 27 dm

We conclude that **2.7 meters is equivalent to 27 decimeters**:

2.7 meters = 27 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.037037037037037 × 2.7 meters**.

Another way is saying that *2.7 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.037037037037037 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **two point seven meters is approximately twenty-seven decimeters**:

2.7 m ≅ 27 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero three seven times two point seven meters*.
