## 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 32 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 32 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

32 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 32 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 320 dm

The final result is:

32 m → 320 dm

We conclude that 32 meters is equivalent to 320 decimeters:

32 meters = 320 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.003125 × 32 meters.

Another way is saying that 32 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.003125 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

32 m ≅ 320 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero three times thirty-two meters.
