## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to meters is 0.1, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.1 meters:

1 dm = 0.1 m

To convert 896 decimeters into meters we have to multiply 896 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.1 m

896 dm → L_{(m)}

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

L_{(m)} = 896 dm × 0.1 m

L_{(m)} = 89.6 m

The final result is:

896 dm → 89.6 m

We conclude that **896 decimeters is equivalent to 89.6 meters**:

896 decimeters = 89.6 meters

## Alternative conversion
