## How to perform key conversions involving length measurements

The formulas for conversion are represented below:

### Meters to Decimeters Formula

dm = m * 10

Example: 30 Meters in Decimeters:

dm = m * 10

dm = 30 * 10

dm = 300

### Decimeters to Meters Formula

m = dm / 10

Example: 1500 Decimeters in Meters:

m = dm / 10

m = 1500 / 10

m = 150

## Frequently asked questions involving length and distance

### 1.5 Meters to Decimeter

Considering that 1 Meter is equivalent to 10 Decimeters, you can use a rule of three to get that 1.5 Meters equals 15 Decimeters.

1 m - 10 dm

1,5 m - x

Apply the rule of three and get:

x m = 15 dm2

x = 15 dm

### 1000 dm is equal to how many Meters?

If every 10 Decimeter we have 1 Meter, just divide the amount of Decimeter (1000) by 10, so you will get that 1000 dm is equivalent to 100 m. Observe the calculation below:

m = dm / 10

m = 1000 / 10

m = 100
