# 160 meters in decimeters

## Conversion

160 meters is equivalent to 1600 decimeters.^{[1]}

## Conversion formula

How to convert 160 meters to decimeters?

We know (by definition) that: $1\mathrm{m}=10\mathrm{dm}$

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

$\frac{1\mathrm{m}}{160\mathrm{m}}=\frac{10\mathrm{dm}}{x\mathrm{dm}}$Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{160\mathrm{m}}{1\mathrm{m}}*10\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=1600\mathrm{dm}$Conclusion: $160\mathrm{m}=1600\mathrm{dm}$

## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that **1 decimeter is equal to 0.000625 times 160 meters**.

It can also be expressed as: 160 meters is equal to $\frac{1}{\mathrm{0.000625}}$ decimeters.

## Approximation

An approximate numerical result would be: **one hundred and sixty meters is about one thousand, six hundred decimeters**, or alternatively, *a decimeter is about zero times one hundred and sixty meters*.
