# 27 decimeters in meters

## Conversion

27 decimeters is equivalent to 2.7 meters.

## Conversion formula How to convert 27 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.

$1 ⁢ dm 27 ⁢ dm = 0.1 ⁢ m x ⁢ m$

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

$x\mathrm{m}=\frac{27\mathrm{dm}}{1\mathrm{dm}}*0.1\mathrm{m}\to x\mathrm{m}=2.7\mathrm{m}$

Conclusion: $27 ⁢ dm = 2.7 ⁢ m$ ## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that 1 meter is equal to 0.37037037037037 times 27 decimeters.
