## What is Decameter?

As the name shows, the decameter is based on the **SI** unit of **length** which is a meter. It is a bigger unit of a meter that is used to measure ordinary objects, **especially** in practical Mathematics. In one Decameter, **10 meters** are included.

To show a measurement taken in the decameters, we write “**dam**” right beside the number used to represent the measurement. **For example**, **25** in this unit will be written as 25 dams.

### What is a Decimeter?

A decimeter is also an extended unit of the **SI** unit of **length** i.e. **meter**. It is a smaller unit that is particularly used in **laboratories** or on a small scale. Around **10** decimeters **combine ** to make **1** meter which is normally used for standard measurements.

To show a measurement in the decimeters, we need to write “**dm**” just beside the number. For example, **2** will be written as “**2 dm**” in decimeters.

### Decameter to Decimeter Formula

As we all know that one unit of length can be **converted** to the other unit by using a particular **formula** or a relationship. Similarly, you can use a relationship to **convert ** a decameter to a decimeter manually. Here is the relationship that stands between these **two units** of **length**.

1 Decameter = 100 Decimeters

Similarly, we can also write the above relationship as,

1 Decimeter = 1/100 Decameters

You can use any of these **relationships** to convert the measurements given in one unit to the other one. **Don’t worry** if you are using a decameter to a **decimeter calculator** because the relationship remains the **same**.

### How to Calculate Decameter to Decimeter?

Now, you know the relationship between Decameter and Decimeter. You can easily **calculate the decameter to decimeters** with the help of these relationships. For your **understanding**, we have also solved an example here.

**Example 1:**

Convert 124 Decameters to Decimeters.

**Solution:**

As we know,

1 Decameter = 100 Decimeters

So,

124 Decameters = 124 x 100 Decimeters

= 12400 Decimeters

### FAQ | Decameter to Decimeter

**How many decimeters are in a decameter?**

100 decimeters are included in 1 decameter.

**Which is bigger 1 decameter or 1 decimeter? **

1 decameter is bigger than 1 decimeter. 100 decimeters combine to make 1 decameter.

**Is DM a decameter or decimeter? **

DM stands for Decimeter while DAM stands for Decameter.

**What is 1 decimeter long?**

1 decimeter is the 10th part of 1 meter. It means if a meter is divided into 10 parts, every part will be called 1 decimeter.

**Which comes first decameter or decimeter? **

When we move from a smaller unit to the bigger one, a decimeter will come first because it is a smaller unit of a meter while a decameter is a bigger unit of a meter.
