# Chapter 9 - Measurement - 9.2 Measuring Area and Volume - Exercise Set 9.2 - Page 595: 82

There are 1000 cubic decimeters in one cubic meter.

#### Work Step by Step

We know that $1~m = 10~dm$ We can find the number of cubic decimeters in one cubic meter. $1~m^3 = 1~m\times 1~m\times 1~m$ $1~m^3 = 10~dm\times 10~dm\times 10~dm$ $1~m^3 = 1000~dm^3$ There are 1000 cubic decimeters in one cubic meter. Note that a cubic meter has three dimensions so we need to multiply the conversion factor three times.
