## What is the Formula to convert Meters to Decimeters?

The formula to convert given length from Meters to Decimeters is:

Length_{(Decimeters)} = Length_{(Meters)} × 10

Substitute the given value of length in meters, i.e., Length_{(Meters)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the length in decimeters, i.e., Length_{(Decimeters)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a luxury yacht has a length of 50 meters.

Convert this length from meters to Decimeters.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in meters is:

Length_{(Meters)} = 50

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from meters to decimeters is:

Length_{(Decimeters)} = Length_{(Meters)} × 10

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Meters)} = 50** in the above formula.

Length_{(Decimeters)} = 50 × 10

Length_{(Decimeters)} = 500

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **50 m** is equal to **500 dm**.

The length is **500 dm**, in decimeters.

### Consider that a private jet has a wingspan of 28 meters.

Convert this wingspan from meters to Decimeters.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The length in meters is:

Length_{(Meters)} = 28

**Formula:**

The formula to convert length from meters to decimeters is:

Length_{(Decimeters)} = Length_{(Meters)} × 10

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Length _{(Meters)} = 28** in the above formula.

Length_{(Decimeters)} = 28 × 10

Length_{(Decimeters)} = 280

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **28 m** is equal to **280 dm**.

The length is **280 dm**, in decimeters.

## Meters

A meter (m) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). One meter is equivalent to approximately 3.2808 feet.

The meter is defined by the distance light travels in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 seconds.

Meters are used worldwide to measure length and distance in various fields, including science, engineering, and everyday life. Most countries have adopted the meter as the standard unit of measurement for length.

## Decimeters

A decimeter (dm) is a unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). One decimeter is equivalent to 0.1 meters or approximately 3.937 inches.

The decimeter is defined as one-tenth of a meter, making it a convenient measurement for intermediate lengths.

Decimeters are used worldwide to measure length and distance in various fields, including science, engineering, and everyday life. They provide a useful scale for measurements that are larger than centimeters but smaller than meters, and are commonly used in educational settings and certain industries.

## Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
