# 472 meters in decimeters

## Conversion

472 meters is equivalent to 4720 decimeters.[1]

## Conversion formula How to convert 472 meters to decimeters?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{m}=10\mathrm{dm}$

We can set up a proportion to solve for the number of decimeters.

$1 ⁢ m 472 ⁢ m = 10 ⁢ dm x ⁢ dm$

Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{472\mathrm{m}}{1\mathrm{m}}*10\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=4720\mathrm{dm}$

Conclusion: $472 ⁢ m = 4720 ⁢ dm$

## Conversion in the opposite direction
