## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from meters to decimeters is 10, which means that 1 meter is equal to 10 decimeters:

1 m = 10 dm

To convert 7.9 meters into decimeters we have to multiply 7.9 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from meters to decimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 m → 10 dm

7.9 m → L_{(dm)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length *L* in decimeters:

L_{(dm)} = 7.9 m × 10 dm

L_{(dm)} = 79 dm

The final result is:

7.9 m → 79 dm

We conclude that **7.9 meters is equivalent to 79 decimeters**:

7.9 meters = 79 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.012658227848101 × 7.9 meters**.

Another way is saying that *7.9 meters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012658227848101 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **seven point nine meters is approximately seventy-nine decimeters**:

7.9 m ≅ 79 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero one three times seven point nine meters*.
