## Conversion formula How to convert 173 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.

$1 ⁢ dm 173 ⁢ dm = 0.1 ⁢ m x ⁢ m$

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

$x\mathrm{m}=\frac{173\mathrm{dm}}{1\mathrm{dm}}*0.1\mathrm{m}\to x\mathrm{m}=17.3\mathrm{m}$

Conclusion: $173 ⁢ dm = 17.3 ⁢ m$
