## 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 55.9 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 55.9 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

55.9 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 55.9 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 559 dm

The final result is:

55.9 m → 559 dm

We conclude that **55.9 meters is equivalent to 559 decimeters**:

55.9 meters = 559 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.001788908765653 × 55.9 meters**.

Another way is saying that *55.9 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.001788908765653 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **fifty-five point nine meters is approximately five hundred fifty-nine decimeters**:

55.9 m ≅ 559 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero two times fifty-five point nine meters*.
