# 138 decimeters in meters

## Conversion

138 decimeters is equivalent to 13.8 meters.[1]

## Conversion formula How to convert 138 decimeters to meters?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{dm}=0.1\mathrm{m}$

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

$1 ⁢ dm 138 ⁢ dm = 0.1 ⁢ m x ⁢ m$

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

$x\mathrm{m}=\frac{138\mathrm{dm}}{1\mathrm{dm}}*0.1\mathrm{m}\to x\mathrm{m}=13.8\mathrm{m}$

Conclusion: $138 ⁢ dm = 13.8 ⁢ m$
