## 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 300 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 300 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

300 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 300 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 3000 dm

The final result is:

300 m → 3000 dm

We conclude that 300 meters is equivalent to 3000 decimeters:

300 meters = 3000 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.00033333333333333 × 300 meters.

Another way is saying that 300 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00033333333333333 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

300 m ≅ 3000 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero times three hundred meters.
