## 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 23.4 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 23.4 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

23.4 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 23.4 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 234 dm

The final result is:

23.4 m → 234 dm

We conclude that 23.4 meters is equivalent to 234 decimeters:

23.4 meters = 234 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.0042735042735043 × 23.4 meters.

Another way is saying that 23.4 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0042735042735043 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

23.4 m ≅ 234 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero four times twenty-three point four meters.
