## 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 8.3 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 8.3 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

8.3 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 8.3 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 83 dm

The final result is:

8.3 m → 83 dm

We conclude that 8.3 meters is equivalent to 83 decimeters:

8.3 meters = 83 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.012048192771084 × 8.3 meters.

Another way is saying that 8.3 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012048192771084 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

8.3 m ≅ 83 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero one two times eight point three meters.
