How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

Kilometers to Decimeters Formula

dm = km x 10000

Example: 30 kilometers in decimeters:

dm = km x 10000

dm = 30 x 10000

dm = 300000

Decimeters to Kilometers Formula

km = dm / 10000

Example: 1500 decimeters in kilometers:

km = dm / 10000

km = 1500 / 10000

km = 0,15

Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

1.5 km in decimeters

Considering that 1 kilometer is equivalent to 10000 decimeters, you can use a rule of three to get that 1.5 km equals 15000 decimeters.

1 km - 10000 dm

1,5 km - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x km = 1500 dkm2

x = 15000 dm

100000 decimeters is equal to how many kilometers?

If every 10000 decimeters we have 1 kilometer, just divide the number of meters (100000) by 10000, so you will get that 10000 dm equals 10 km. Observe the calculation below:

km = dm / 10000

Km = 100000 / 10000

km = 10
