## Conversion formula

How to convert 717 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.

$\frac{1\mathrm{m}}{717\mathrm{m}}=\frac{10\mathrm{dm}}{x\mathrm{dm}}$Now, we cross multiply to solve for our unknown $x$:

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{717\mathrm{m}}{1\mathrm{m}}*10\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=7170\mathrm{dm}$Conclusion: $717\mathrm{m}=7170\mathrm{dm}$

## Conversion in the opposite direction

The inverse of the conversion factor is that **1 decimeter is equal to 0.000139470013947001 times 717 meters**.

It can also be expressed as: 717 meters is equal to $\frac{1}{\mathrm{0.000139470013947001}}$ decimeters.

## Approximation
