One can either count on the m to dm conversion calculator or can compute the converted value through the meter to dm conversion formula. To convert values from m into dm with the help of a formula, follow the procedure.

## Meters:

The **Meter** is described as a value equivalent to the distance covered by the light within 1/299 792 458 per second. A **meter** is a unit of Length or Distance in the Metric System. The symbol for meter is m.

There are 0.1 **meters** in a decimeter. The International spelling for this unit is meter. The **meter**/metre is being used for measuring length, width and height in almost every country in the world, except in the US, where they use the Imperial/US customary units.

## Decimeters:

The **decimeter** is a length measurement unit in the aegis of the metric system. A **decimeter** is a unit of Length or Distance in the Metric System. The symbol for decimeter is dm.

There are 10 **decimeters** in a meter. The International spelling for this unit is decimeter.

## What is the relationship between Meter and Decimeter?

The relationship between Meters and Decimeters is easy to decipher, especially when you are familiar with the conversion ratio. Both units are used for length measurement purposes around the globe.

The key factor that relates these units with each other more is the equivalent values.

These values act as a base for converting m to dm, as well as dm to m. One meter is equivalent to 10 dm, while one decimeter is equivalent to 0.1 meter.

## How to Convert from Meters to Decimeters?

All you have to do is replace the meter with the value that needs to be converted and multiply it by 10. The resultant value will be the converted value.

**Decimeter = Meter * 10. **

For example,** if you want to convert 1 m to dm, just replace x by 1 [m]:****1 m = 1 * 10 = 10 dm**

**Steps****Multiply the amount of meters by 10.The result will be expressed in decimeters.**

**Examples of Converting Meters to Decimeters:****Convert 27 Meter to Decimeter [m to dm]**

To convert** 27 m to dm, multiply 27 by 10****Decimeters = 27 * 10**

That is equal to** 270 decimeters**.

[**Using formula Decimeter = Meter * 10**]

**Convert 45 Meter to Decimeter [m into dm]**

To convert** 45 m into dm, multiply 45 by 10****Decimeters = 45 * 10**

That is equal to **450 decimeters.**

[**Using formula Decimeter = Meter * 10**]
