## How to convert from meters to dekameters?

To convert a distance or length from meters or m to dekameters or hm, follow the simple steps below:

- Write down the length value in
**meters (m)**. **Multiply**it by the value of a meter-to-dekameter conversion factor:**0.1**.- The result from multiplication is the value of a length or distance in
**dekameters**or**dkm**.

## Meters to dekameters formula

Here is the equation to find the length or distance in dekameters (dkm) when knowing the **n-meters** (m): **n** (m) = **n × 0.1** (dkm).

Fraction formula for converting from meters to dkm:

Decimal formula:

Or remember the conversion factor: **1 m = 0.1 dkm**.

## Examples

How to convert 132 meters to dekameters?

Write down **132 meters** and multiply it by the meter-to-dekameter conversion factor: **0.1** to get dekameters:

So 132 meters is equal to 13.2 dekameters or **13.2 dkm**.

How to convert 200 meters to dekameters?

Write down 200 meters and divide it by 10 to get dekameters:

So 200 meters is equal to 20 dekameters or **20 dkm**.

Alternatively, you can use our calculator by entering 200 into the meter box, and you instantly get the length in dekameters, in this case, 20 dkm.

## FAQs

When should we use dekameters to measure a distance?

The dekameter unit isn't often used in everyday life since a dekameter is just ten meters, which isn't much different in value. However, one of its best use cases is to measure the length of a city block. A standard city block has a typical distance of around ten dekameters.

How many meters are there in a dekameter?

There are 10 meters in a dekameter. **Deka-** or **dk-** is an official SI prefix denoting multiplication by 10.

Is meters or dekameters bigger?

A dekameter is ten times bigger than a meter. The meter is the base unit of metric length in the International System of Units (SI), while a dekameter equals ten meters.
