## 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 271 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 271 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

271 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 271 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 2710 dm

The final result is:

271 m → 2710 dm

We conclude that **271 meters is equivalent to 2710 decimeters**:

271 meters = 2710 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.0003690036900369 × 271 meters**.

Another way is saying that *271 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0003690036900369 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **two hundred seventy-one meters is approximately two thousand seven hundred ten decimeters**:

271 m ≅ 2710 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero times two hundred seventy-one meters*.
