## 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 9.6 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 9.6 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

9.6 m → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 9.6 m × 10 dm

L(dm) = 96 dm

The final result is:

9.6 m → 96 dm

We conclude that 9.6 meters is equivalent to 96 decimeters:

9.6 meters = 96 decimeters ## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.010416666666667 × 9.6 meters.

Another way is saying that 9.6 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.010416666666667 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

9.6 m ≅ 96 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero one times nine point six meters.
