## Conversion formula

How to convert 388 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.

$\frac{1\mathrm{dm}}{388\mathrm{dm}}=\frac{0.1\mathrm{m}}{x\mathrm{m}}$Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{m}=\frac{388\mathrm{dm}}{1\mathrm{dm}}*0.1\mathrm{m}\to x\mathrm{m}=38.800000000000004\mathrm{m}$Conclusion: $388\mathrm{dm}=38.800000000000004\mathrm{m}$
