## 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 70.2 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 70.2 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

70.2 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 70.2 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 702 dm

The final result is:

70.2 m → 702 dm

We conclude that **70.2 meters is equivalent to 702 decimeters**:

70.2 meters = 702 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.0014245014245014 × 70.2 meters**.

Another way is saying that *70.2 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0014245014245014 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

70.2 m ≅ 702 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero one times seventy point two meters*.
