## 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 87 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 87 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

87 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 87 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 870 dm

The final result is:

87 m → 870 dm

We conclude that **87 meters is equivalent to 870 decimeters**:

87 meters = 870 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.0011494252873563 × 87 meters**.

Another way is saying that *87 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0011494252873563 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

87 m ≅ 870 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero one times eighty-seven meters*.
