## 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 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 6 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 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 6 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 60 dm

The final result is:

6 m → 60 dm

We conclude that 6 meters is equivalent to 60 decimeters:

6 meters = 60 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.016666666666667 × 6 meters.

Another way is saying that 6 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.016666666666667 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

6 m ≅ 60 dm

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