## 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 24 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 24 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

24 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 24 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 240 dm

The final result is:

24 m → 240 dm

We conclude that **24 meters is equivalent to 240 decimeters**:

24 meters = 240 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.0041666666666667 × 24 meters**.

Another way is saying that *24 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0041666666666667 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

24 m ≅ 240 dm

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