The International Bureau of Weights and Measures defines a decameter as a unit of length. The dam is the official sign for decameters, however, Dm and dkm are also used informally). 1 decameter = 10 meters. In a decameter, there are 393.70078740157 inches, or 1 Decameter is equal to 393.70078740157 Inches.

1 dm = 393.70078740157 in

In the imperial and US customary measuring systems, an inch (symbol: in) is a unit of length. In 1959, An inch was defined as being equal to exactly 0.00254 Decameters. A foot is 12 inches in length and a yard is 36 inches in length. 1 Inch is equal to 0.00254 Decameters, 

1 in = 0.00254 dam

As, There are 0.00254 Decameters in 1 Inches. 

Formula to convert Decameter to Inches 

To convert Decameters to Inches, Multiply the Length by the conversion ratio. 

One Decameters is equal to 393.70079 Inches, 

So use this simple formula to convert,

Length(in) = Length (dam) × 393.70078740157

Or

1 in = 0.00254 dam

Sample Questions

Question 1: What is the length of the board in inches if it is 250 dm?

Solution: 

To find: The length of the board in inches

Given, Length of the board in decameters = 250

Using the decameter to inches formula,

The length of board in inches

Length(in) = Length (dam) × 393.70078740157

= (250 × 393.7007874)

= 98425.1968 inches

Question 2: Convert 50 decameter into inches?

Solution: 

Given: 50 dm 

To convert it,

Length(in) = Length (dam) × 393.70078740157 

= 50 × 393.70078740157 

= 19685 .0394 inch.

Question 3: Convert 50 inches into decameter?

Solution: 

Given: 50 in

1 in = 0.00254 dam

So 50 inches = 50 × 0.00254 dam

= 0.127 dam 

Question 4: How to convert 10 dm into an inch?

Solution: 

Given: 10 mm

Now by formula 

Length(in) = Length (dam) × 393.70078740157 

= 10 × 393.70078740157 inch

= 3937.00787 inch 

1 inch = 0.00254 dam

1 dam = 1/0.00254 inch

= 10 / 0.00254

= 3937.00787 inch

Question 5: Convert 200 dm into an inch?

Solution: 

Using the above formula,

Length(in) = Length (dam) × 393.70078740157 

= 200 × 393.70078740157 

= 78,740.1574 inch

Question 6: How to convert 126 dm into an inch?

Solution: 

Given: 126 dm 

Using the above formula,

Length(in) = Length (dam) × 393.70078740157

= 126 × 393.70078740157

= 49,606.299 inch.
