### What is a Decimeter?

The **Decimetre** (SI symbol dm) or decimeter (American spelling) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one-tenth of a meter. The term “Deci” means one-tenth, and therefore decimetre means one-tenth of a meter.

Since a meter is made up of 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one decimeter measures 10 cm or 3.937 inches

### What is a Kilometer?

The **Kilometre **(SI symbol: km) is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to one thousand metres (kilo- being the SI prefix for 1000).

A kilometer is a metric system unit mainly used to express distance in most of the world; notable exceptions are the United States and the United Kingdom, where the mile is the unit used. Even though kilometers and miles are used for measuring the same unit (distance), the value differs.

### How to Convert Decimeter to Kilometers?

To convert Decimeter to Kilometers, simply divide the Decimeter value by 10000.

The formula used to calculate Decimeter to Kilometers -

**d**_{(dm)} = **d**_{(km)} / 10000

The distance *d* in Kilometers (km) is equal to the distance *d* in Decimeters (dm) divided by 10000.

### How many Kilometers in a Decimeter

In simple terms, 1 dm is equal to 0.0001 km.

The formula used is 1/10000 = 0.0001(km)

### How many Decimeters in a Kilometer

1 Kilometer is equal to 10000 Decimeters. So we can also say that there are 10000 Decimeters in a Kilometer.
