# 48 meters in decimeters

## Conversion

48 meters is equivalent to 480 decimeters.[1]

## Conversion formula How to convert 48 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.

$1 ⁢ m 48 ⁢ m = 10 ⁢ dm x ⁢ dm$

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

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{48\mathrm{m}}{1\mathrm{m}}*10\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=480\mathrm{dm}$

Conclusion: $48 ⁢ m = 480 ⁢ dm$

## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.00208333333333333 times 48 meters.

It can also be expressed as: 48 meters is equal to $\frac{1}{\mathrm{0.00208333333333333}}$ decimeters.

## Approximation

An approximate numerical result would be: forty-eight meters is about four hundred and eighty decimeters, or alternatively, a decimeter is about zero times forty-eight meters.
