## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from kilometers to decimeters is 10000, which means that 1 kilometer is equal to 10000 decimeters:

1 km = 10000 dm

To convert 842 kilometers into decimeters we have to multiply 842 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from kilometers to decimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 km → 10000 dm

842 km → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 842 km × 10000 dm

L_{(dm)} = 8420000 dm

The final result is:

842 km → 8420000 dm

We conclude that **842 kilometers is equivalent to 8420000 decimeters**:

842 kilometers = 8420000 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 1.187648456057E-7 × 842 kilometers**.

Another way is saying that *842 kilometers is equal to 1 ÷ 1.187648456057E-7 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **eight hundred forty-two kilometers is approximately eight million four hundred twenty thousand decimeters**:

842 km ≅ 8420000 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero times eight hundred forty-two kilometers*.
