## 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 71 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 71 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

71 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 71 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 710 dm

The final result is:

71 m → 710 dm

We conclude that 71 meters is equivalent to 710 decimeters:

71 meters = 710 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.0014084507042254 × 71 meters.

Another way is saying that 71 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0014084507042254 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

71 m ≅ 710 dm

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