# 987 meters in decimeters

## Conversion

987 meters is equivalent to 9870 decimeters.

## Conversion formula How to convert 987 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.

$1 ⁢ m 987 ⁢ m = 10 ⁢ dm x ⁢ dm$

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

$x\mathrm{dm}=\frac{987\mathrm{m}}{1\mathrm{m}}*10\mathrm{dm}\to x\mathrm{dm}=9870\mathrm{dm}$

Conclusion: $987 ⁢ m = 9870 ⁢ dm$ ## Conversion in the opposite direction
