## 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 408 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 408 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

408 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 408 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 4080 dm

The final result is:

408 m → 4080 dm

We conclude that **408 meters is equivalent to 4080 decimeters**:

408 meters = 4080 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.00024509803921569 × 408 meters**.

Another way is saying that *408 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.00024509803921569 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

408 m ≅ 4080 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero times four hundred eight meters*.
