5 m = (5 × 10) = 50 dm
Convert 10m dm
10 m = (10 × 10) = 100 dm

What is a Meter?
A meter, or metre (m), is the length and distance base unit in the International System of Units (SI). The meter is defined as the distance traveled by light in 1/299 792 458 of a second. This definition was modified in 2019 to reflect changes in the definition of the second.
Meter can be abbreviated as m; for example, 1 Meter can be written as 1m.

The meter is used worldwide in many applications, such as measuring distance, being the SI unit of length. The United States is one notable exception in that it primarily uses US customary units such as yards, inches, feet, and miles instead of meters in everyday use.
What is an Decimeter?
A decimeter is a unit of length in the metric system. The term “Deci” means one-tenth, and therefore decimetre means one-tenth of a meter. Since a meter is 100 cm, one-tenth of 100 cm is 10 cm. Thus one Decimeter measures 10 cm.
Decimeter can be abbreviated as dm; for example, 1 Decimeter can be written as 1dm.
What is the Decimeter used for?
A decimeter is not widely used but is an important unit. In real life, we rarely find measurements written in decimetres. Since one meter is not a very long length, it is easier to use 0.1 m or 0.5 m when the length is shorter than a meter.
