how is decimeter and kilometer related?
a kilometer is 1000 metres and a decimeter is one tenth of a metre
A decimeter is one tenth of one meter. A kilometer is 1000 meters.
1 km is equal to 10000 decimeter. Decimeter is smaller than km.
10 centimeters = 1 decimeter
1 kilometer = 10 000 decimeters, hence the kilometer is bigger.
Multiply by 10,000
decimeter = dm centimeter = cm meter = m kilometer = km
1000 metres make a kilometer and 10 decimeter make a meter. so 10000 decimeters make a kilometer.
