Converting between different units of measurement is a common task, especially in fields like science, engineering, and geography. The decameter to kilometer converter simplifies the process of converting lengths from decameters (1 decameter = 10 meters) to kilometers (1 kilometer = 1000 meters).

A decameter is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to 10 meters. It's often used in geographical measurements and large-scale constructions.

A kilometer is a unit of length in the metric system, equal to 1000 meters.

This converter facilitates quick and accurate conversions, saving time and effort.

It's useful when dealing with distances in decameters that need to be expressed in kilometers.

This converter can be used in various fields such as construction, land surveying, and transportation.

To convert decameters to kilometers, use the formula:

`$${\text{Kilometers}}_{}=\frac{\mathrm{Decameters}}{\mathrm{10}}$$`

Example 1:

Convert 36 decameters to kilometers.

`${\text{Kilometers}}_{}=\frac{{\text{36}}_{}}{{\text{10}}_{}}$`

Answer = 3.6 kms

Example 2:

Convert 60 decameters to kilometers.

`${\text{Kilometers}}_{}=\frac{{\text{60}}_{}}{{\text{10}}_{}}$`

Answer = 6 kms

Example 3:

Convert 15 decameters to kilometers.

`${\text{Kilometers}}_{}=\frac{{\text{15}}_{}}{{\text{10}}_{}}$`

Answer = 1.5 kms
