## 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 265 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 265 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

265 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 265 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 2650 dm

The final result is:

265 m → 2650 dm

We conclude that 265 meters is equivalent to 2650 decimeters:

265 meters = 2650 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.00037735849056604 × 265 meters.

Another way is saying that 265 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00037735849056604 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two hundred sixty-five meters is approximately two thousand six hundred fifty decimeters:

265 m ≅ 2650 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero times two hundred sixty-five meters.
