## 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 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 23 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 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 23 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 230 dm

The final result is:

23 m → 230 dm

We conclude that 23 meters is equivalent to 230 decimeters:

23 meters = 230 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.0043478260869565 × 23 meters.

Another way is saying that 23 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0043478260869565 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

23 m ≅ 230 dm

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