## 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 43 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 43 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

43 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 43 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 430 dm

The final result is:

43 m → 430 dm

We conclude that **43 meters is equivalent to 430 decimeters**:

43 meters = 430 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.0023255813953488 × 43 meters**.

Another way is saying that *43 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0023255813953488 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

43 m ≅ 430 dm

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