### What is a Meter?

**Meter** (abbreviation, m), also spelled as Metre(Commonwealth spelling), is the base unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). The SI unit symbol is m.

In the imperial system, a meter is equal to about 3.2 feet or 3 feet 3 inches.

The metric system is the standard of measurement used nearly everywhere in the world except in the United States; thus, it is the primary measurement system for scientific studies. Today, only the United States, Burma, and Liberia use the imperial system, and all other countries use the metric system.

### 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

### How to Convert Meter to Decimeters?

To convert Meter to Decimeters, simply multiply the Meter value by 10.

The formula used to calculate Meter to Decimeters -

**d**_{(m)} = **d**_{(dm)} * 10

The distance *d* in Decimeters (dm) is equal to the distance *d* in Meters (m) multiplied by 10.

### How many Decimeters in a Meter

In simple terms, 1 m is equal to 10 dm.

The formula used is 1*10 = 10(dm)

### How many Meters in a Decimeter

1 Decimeter is equal to 0.1 Meters. So we can also say that there are 0.1 Meters in a Decimeter.
