## Conversion Formula

By using the online converter calculator on this page, you can calculate how many decimeters are in 'X' meters (X is the number of meters you want to convert to decimeters). In order to convert a value from meters to decimeters (from m to dm) simply type the number of meters to be converted to decimeters and then click on the 'convert' button. The formula used for converting a specific value from meters to decimeters is:

X meters * cf = Y decimeters

where

X = the specific value to be converted (in meters)

cf = the conversion factor from meters to decimeters

Y = the result (in decimeters)

*Example*

Let's suppose that you have a value of length of 800 meters and want to express it in decimeters.

800 m = (800 × 10) dm

800 m = 8000 dm

## Conversion factor

1 meter is equal to 10 decimeter

(1 m = 10 dm )
