## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to meters is 0.1, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.1 meters:

1 dm = 0.1 m

To convert 600 decimeters into meters we have to multiply 600 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.1 m

600 dm → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 600 dm × 0.1 m

L_{(m)} = 60 m

The final result is:

600 dm → 60 m

We conclude that **600 decimeters is equivalent to 60 meters**:

600 decimeters = 60 meters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 meter is equal to 0.016666666666667 × 600 decimeters**.

Another way is saying that *600 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.016666666666667 meters*.

## Approximate result

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

600 dm ≅ 60 m

An alternative is also that *one meter is approximately zero point zero one seven times six hundred decimeters*.
