# 83 decimeters in meters

## Conversion

83 decimeters is equivalent to 8.3 meters.[1]

## Conversion formula How to convert 83 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.

$1 ⁢ dm 83 ⁢ dm = 0.1 ⁢ m x ⁢ m$

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

$x\mathrm{m}=\frac{83\mathrm{dm}}{1\mathrm{dm}}*0.1\mathrm{m}\to x\mathrm{m}=8.3\mathrm{m}$

Conclusion: $83 ⁢ dm = 8.3 ⁢ m$
