## 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 97 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 97 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

97 m → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 97 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 970 dm

The final result is:

97 m → 970 dm

We conclude that **97 meters is equivalent to 970 decimeters**:

97 meters = 970 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.0010309278350515 × 97 meters**.

Another way is saying that *97 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0010309278350515 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

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

97 m ≅ 970 dm

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