## 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 298 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 298 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

298 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 298 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 2980 dm

The final result is:

298 m → 2980 dm

We conclude that 298 meters is equivalent to 2980 decimeters:

298 meters = 2980 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.00033557046979866 × 298 meters.

Another way is saying that 298 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00033557046979866 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that two hundred ninety-eight meters is approximately two thousand nine hundred eighty decimeters:

298 m ≅ 2980 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero times two hundred ninety-eight meters.
