# Decameter To Meters Calculator

For a Mathematics **student**, it is common to get questions related to converting between **various** units. One of the most common tasks is to convert **units** related to **length**. The conversion of multiple units to **meters** is the main task that many students perform. For some students, it can be a complicated **process** when they don’t know the relationship between the **concerned** units.

Among other **converting units**, we are here to discuss Decameter to Meters conversion. If you think it will be a **difficult** process, you can use the **Decameter to Meters Calculator**. This handy tool has been designed to convert a measurement from Decameters to Meters quickly. You can use this Maths Calculator using simple steps that we will **discuss** later.

## What is Decameter?

A Decameter is a particular unit used to **measure** the length of standard objects. This measure of length is neither used for **small** objects nor for **extra-large** ones. It is based on the **SI unit** that we call meter and discuss in the following section.

Based on the **meters**, they can be **converted **to meters within a few minutes. You can do this manually or follow the **steps** to use **Decameter to Meters Calculator**. To show a measurement in this unit, “**dam**” is used.

## What is a Meter?

It is the SI unit of length that is used all **over** the **globe**. A meter is **considered** the unit used for **small** objects like **clothes**, box **sizes**, and other **similar** objects. For showing measurement in meters, “**m**” is used just beside the **number**.

**For example**, if we want to say **5 meters**, we will write it as “**5 m**”. This SI unit has many extended units like centimeters, kilometers, and **decimeters**. These units are based on the meter and given names as the **fraction** of this base **unit**.

### How to calculate Decameter to Meter?

To understand the **method** to calculate **Decameter to meters**, you need to know the relationship between these **units **. A decimeter is a **bigger** unit of meter and includes **10 meters**. It means that 10 meters are **combined** to make a decameter.

1 Decameter = 10 meters

Similarly, we can also say that,

1 meter = 1/10 Decameters

To make it understandable, we have also shared a solved example of this conversion here.

**Example 1:**

Convert 12 Decameters to Meters.

**Solution:**

We know that,

1 Dam = 10 m

So,

12 Dam = 12 x 10 m

= 120 m

**Example 2:**

Convert 900 meters to Decameters.

**Solution:**

As we know,

1 meter = 1/10 Decameters

So,

900 m = 900/10 Dam

= 90 Dam

### DM to M Table
