## 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 6.3 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 6.3 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

6.3 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 6.3 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 63 dm

The final result is:

6.3 m → 63 dm

We conclude that **6.3 meters is equivalent to 63 decimeters**:

6.3 meters = 63 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.015873015873016 × 6.3 meters**.

Another way is saying that *6.3 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.015873015873016 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **six point three meters is approximately sixty-three decimeters**:

6.3 m ≅ 63 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero one six times six point three meters*.
